In this chapter, we tie together the previous two chapters by interweaving them with optics, resulting in two related disciplines: optical crystallography and optical crystal chemistry.
Topics covered in Chapter 5 include: Macroscopic View of Polarized Light and Minerals Making a Thin Section Meet Your Microscope Wave Theory of LIght Optical Classes and Refractive Index Reflection vs. Refraction: Snell's Law Wavelength and Refractive Index Visual Representations of Refractive Index Birefringence and Retardation Interference Figures
