We have thought of breaking coverslips to pick suitable pieces, but I think 
this soon would be tiresome. It is also easier to handle square glass pieces, 
I assume. The thing is that we do already have some 3 x 3 mm glass plates, 
but they are from prehistorical times, and nobody knows where thay came from. 
We are now reaching the end of the supply...
