shiny white streaks or chrysalis structures in skin cancer

I have just read a really useful article with some dermoscopic images about shiny white streaks. These are also called chrysalids, chrysalis structures or the chrysalis sign. I only have a few images of them, and that may be because of my reliance on glass plate dermoscopy most of the time, so I may be missing them. Anyway, they are seen in melanoma, BCC, dermatofibroma and in some uncommon skin cancers.

DO have a look at this link.
