These are some pictures I have taken through the microscope. All of the pictures are of recrystalized ascorbic acid except for the last two. The last two are of NH4 with perchloric acid (clear crystals) and chloroplatinic acid (yellow) respectively.

Funny thing, many years ago I was playing with computer graphic effect called plasma - there many variants, some of them very similar to some of the pictures.

Really? It sounds colourful

P.S. I think I've caught your condition for seeing faces in random places. I see odd faces in the first picture on the bottom (yellow one). Maybe it's just me? lol

Excellent! I love cross polarisation. I used petrological microscopes a lot a few years ago and rocks look very very pretty massively magnified. I wish we'd had a decent microscope camera and I wish I'd had chance to use the one we had more often.

Here's some of the rock I'd studied for my dissertation:

Very interesting photos. Is that microscope, which you call a 'petrolological microscope,' a polarized light microscope? It looks exactly like the microscope I used (Olympus BH-2 PLM).

BTW I love your photos on Flickr!

I forget exactly what it was but I'm pretty sure it was polarised light. It would produce similar effects to what's in your photos (though less dramatic on most minerals.)
Also thanks, glad you like them.

I had to look at various minerals in the lab under polarized light. (i.e. hornblende, gypsum, calcite, etc.) I liked the ones that weren't isotropic.
