Fast Scanning - Calcite Reconstruction Viewed by Cypher AFM

This interesting video shows the behaviour of freshly cleaved calcite which reconstructs upon exposure to humid air. The action was captured with a Cypher AFM from Asylum Research that rapidly scans the surface of the sample.

The actual behaviour is not fully understood, but it is known to be driven by water
