This is a reportage on the pebbles of the beach of Carboneras (Andalusia, Spain) where I spent a fantastic summer vacation with my family. This area is geologically fascinating and quite complicated, and I have been studying the rocks occurring nearby for almost two decades. But for pure fun I decided to collect some of the pebbles of the beach and see how they would look like under the polarizing microscope.

An Italian geologist was inspired to create magnified images of the composition of pebbles when on holiday Professor Cesare, of the University of Padova, Italy, carefully selected pebbles from a beach in Carboneras, which is known for the variety of geologically different rock available He cut them into thin sections and used an optical microscope to make micrographs of the pebbles From the Daily Mail online
