Walnut egg after oiling - view 2

Another side of the egg. Despite the rather flat lighting on this picture, you can see the pale horizontal bands near the top and the equator. These bands shift intensity when the egg is twisted in bright light, an example of chatoyance.

Compare this picture with the "Walnut egg before finishing view 2" below which shows the same side of the egg. You can see where the oil intensifies the contrast in the figure.
