The interference figures produced by anisotropic crystals under the petrographic microscope can be synthesized by a digital model. This model allows the evaluation of a body of optical crystallographic theory as applied to interference figure phenomena. The accuracy and clarity of the figures produced by the digital model suggest applications for petrographers.
