A method is put forward whereby the optic angle of a crystal may be found in a section perpendicular to an optic axis. Curves of darkness for two series of spheroconics are drawn and the medial lines are plotted. The axis of the isogyre in a crystal section is referred to these curves whereby the value of 2V may be obtained to within approximately four degrees.
