I will have to look at this one later in the evening and see if it is bright enough.
This should have good resolution at high magnification,
and nice 3D effects. 
Thinking that I am losing resolution and brightness when transferring the image between computers.

Usually background symmetry looks too forced/should.
I've been trying a Gimp "Symmetrize" filter...
also "Gaussian Smoothing" is interesting vs "Diffusion Smoothing.

I have been getting some of my jade rocks cut open,
so I reconstructed some of the slabs into geometries.
Very experimental here, as I don't use this medium too often.

First image is a reverse color image

2nd image is a slab that was green and blue with thin blue chatoyant cats eye veins.
Those thin veins appear in the green section that surrounds the central blue hexagonal area.

3rd image is a nice blue jade into an octagonal geometry.
The background is grass.

The jade cuts reveal infinite resolution when seen at max zoom.
Gargoyle symmetries abound.
Do you have any other samples with polished surfaces?

Nephrite jade upscaled from 600x400 to 1800x1200
resulting in some loss of detail...showing possibilities.

Gimp filters include Magic Details, Symmetrize, Tone and Texture Enhance, Channel Processing.

That is really cool. Turned out pretty good resolution actually.
Reminds me of flip - mirror in a Martian landscape.

Those jades used for the images were cut on a huge saw with a good lapidary blade,
then had a little mineral oil put of the flat surface,
then wiped clean with a cloth and then hand and finger rubbed a bit.
The blade put the polish on them.
I have lots of cut rocks showing the interiors.
grossular, diopside, vesuvianite, and jade mostly.

This guy has a jade cutting operation, and this monster is the saw we used.
The blade and housing moves on rails back and forth, sideways and up and down.
here it is cutting a 70 pound piece of grossular garnet

Here is one we cut the same day.
This is a 65 pound diopside nephrite jade mix.
Rare quality here to get these swirly patterns so profusely condensed together.
I should do a reconstructed grid of this one as well,
but you are welcome to use it if you would like.
I found this at the absolute end of the last longest rock bar,
sitting down deep in a hole with it's nose sticking out.

No scaling necessary...
