This is a picture of the wafer from my last post, shown in its entirety. The bands of color appear where light hits it, so it sparkles and changes color as you move. Usually these wafers are chopped up into individual silicon chips, but if a wafer is damaged or scratched in production, they are discarded.
Since I'm in the tech business (as an app developer) I'm planning to frame my wafers and use them to decorate my office. But first, I'm taking lots of photos of them from different angles and in different lighting to get interesting effects. I have good eyesight for tiny details, but the intricacies revealed in macro photos are amazing, and the colors are gorgeous.
