The picture is rectangular and split in two sections vertically. The section on the left shows a microscopy image in black and white. The right side shows a limescale rock in colour. Both images show a similar pattern in the middle. The pattern is composed of vertical rods, like a group of straws, very close to each other in between two smooth layers of materials.
