3D3DEtched cast aluminum bar.
This bar was cast from very high purity aluminum pellets in a mold made by drilling a hole in a graphite slab, then etched with diluted potassium hydroxide. It was cooled slowly to allow crystals inside to grow large, as you can see from the size of the textured patches: Each patch represents a boundary of a single crystal.
