GEOLIB CD-ROM Images

This image is courtesy of Donna and Stuart Wilensky Mineral Video and shows Copper included in a Calcite crystal.
Image and Mineral properties may be retrieved by clicking the right mouse button on the image.
When selecting a mineral you get all the available images of that mineral as thumbnails.
Pick one, and blow it up.
If only one image is available, this will be displayed immediately

ZOOM Function


You can also Zoom a part of the image by dragging a rectangle on the area you would like to enlarge.
This zoom is a true bitmap zoom, i.e., uses a stretch bit algorithm to compensate for higher bit granularity inside the zoomed area.
This works like a "Digital Microscope", so that details will be kept or even enhanced.
This will work OK in the range between 10% - 80% enlargement.
Zoom ratios over this will produce some bit fragmentation and thus less detail displayed.

and shows Sturmanite crystals, notice the incredible 3D effect.


Click here to see the tree selection window
by double clicking or dragging a mineral in this tree you may retrieve more information.
You may choose to sort the minerals either alphabetic or in systematic order inside a mineral class or you may list them all.

You may implement your OWN IMAGES linked to your own specimens.
You may also link documents and videos.
Maybe you have a picture or a video from your favorite "DIAMOND LOCATION", at the moment you picked a really gemmy one out of the ground Why not try it and see how it works.
