    Hi, commonly crystal/solution boundary looks dark. Is that due to destructive interference at the boundary of the two mediums wih different refractive indeces? As there are sharp crystal edges this pretty much resembles the behaviour of an optical wedge....or?

    i believe if you stick with it being the interface between two materials, and thus two refractive indices, if you follow the lights path you will be fine.

    black implies absorption to me, i do not think that this is where you meant to go with that question.
