How to View Stereo Images
- Nickname: Captain Hook
- Collected: From road cut on Nolansville Pike in Nashville, 1.1 miles west of Nolansville Road, Lower Bigby Formation, just above the laminated Hermitage Formation
- Comments: Scale Bar is 0.5 mm. Darkfield illumination of conodont under oil immersion. Aligned according to base of denticles between two cusps at -25 degrees. Images use JVC digital videocamera. This is a "curly" element that shows potato-chip like rotation of the anterior cusp away from the plane of the rest of the denticles. Views from top show different lighting styles. The M3 was taken with the element clinging to the edge of a glass slide from best contrast.
