Figure 2

Backscatter electron (upper figures) and bright-field TEM (lower figures) images of the two complete subsections. (a, c) RB-QD04-0042-02 and (b, d) RB-QD04-0042-03. The greyish areas represent sample areas (Ol = olivine, Tro = troilite, T-Tae = tetrataenite, Di = diopside), while areas masked in red color are residues from the preparation process (GP = glycol phthalate, Pt = platinum, Al = aluminum).
