    Great picture. Why don't you take this language from the "about this panorama" section... "There is a band of black mineral grains to the left of center of the image that is a cumulate layer of the mineral chromite - in the magma chamber from which these minerals crystallized that band of chromite would have originally settled out in a horizontal layer" and recreate it as a snapshot w/comment? That way you reduce uncertainty (by the person viewing the image) as to the information you convey - and you make fuller use of the Gigapan features. And if you REALLY want to make it educational, add a link in the snapshot comment to a web page that describes the crystallization process in greater detail & pictures. Great work, all in all.

    There aren't any more yet, but I can and will make more when I get a chance. They're a little more effort intensive than a standard GigaPan because they don't utilize the robot. Nonetheless, I've got the equipment to make lots more of these - the biggest limitation right now is my time.
