Abstract Rhythmic precipitates of centrosymmetric phthalic acid were analyzed by a square-wave mechanically modulated circular extinction imaging microscope. Spherulites were bisected into square-millimeter sized heterochiral domains that are a consequence of circular intensity differential scattering of left and right circularly polarized light. The dissymmetry and chiral amplification indicated optically was confirmed in the microtexture established by atomic force and scanning electron microscopies.
