Ultimate weapon of crystal annealing

Following Terese Bergfors' advice of using a playing card for performing a subtle crystal annealing, I've managed to get this "pretty" picture:

Result: No enhanced spots. No better resolution. It didn't even improve my Poker skills.

EDIT: After trying it several times, and exchanging cards with my team mate, I've finally *consistently* improved my resolution, from the initial 28 Angstrom to a not-so-poor-but-still-pretty-useless 18 Angstrom. Woohoo. Let's see if a genuine synchrotron ride (to hopefully happen next week) makes these protein conglomerates really deserve the name Krystallos.

And, yes, this method is too cool for the school.
