A couple of chemical mixtures in cross-polarised and compensated polarised light.

These are some of the most interesting and beautiful microphotos of chemical mixes I have ever seen.

Stunning set! I've been watching quite a "bloom" of polarisation pics online over the past year. These are up with the best. I haven't dabbled in that time, too much other tinkering on the go. But you've possibly instigated a bit of an itch now 🙄😁

Very beautiful photomicrographs. It would be nice to know what the chemicals were. Also did you make these crystals by melting, or drying solutions on a slide.

Cheers

I've dabbled at this and tried to get the blooming effect you get. I've got quite a ways to go. You are really reaching an apex taking this type of photomicroscopy to another level. Very inspirational.

Very well deserved! I am not usually moved by these chemical abracts, but yours are very different, perhaps because of their illusion of dimensionality.
