This series examines various materials under cross-polarized light. Birefringence, or double refraction, is a property of some materials that causes a light ray entering the substance to split into two rays.  Different wavelengths of light in the two rays interfere with each other to either amplify or subdue various colors. The extraneous "white" light is filtered out by the polarizing filters.
