This is an image of Tourmaline, photographed from two different angles with polarised light.
Tourmaline is Pleochromic, meaning it changes colour as the angle changes. This isn’t a surface effect like the changing rainbow colours on an oil slick, it happens throughout the crystal.
The crystal structure in Tourmaline is anisotropic, which means it looks different from different directions. That means light coming in from different directions experience different effects and can get absorbed in different amounts, leading to something very cool.
It also happens with other crystals, like this Cordierite
There needs to be a video of this!
Here’s a gif. I like gifs. This is Iolite, the gem version of Cordierite, changing colour as the angle changes. Pretty. If you absolutely need a video though, here’s the source
