This is a continuation from the series I took the other day. Hope you like them too. Many of these require a large magnification to really enjoy, especially the first one below.

Waldo,

Really nice!

Are you doing the dissolved "crystals" under a cover slip or uncovered?

Dissolved crystals are all without coverslips. Only when I melt crystals I use a coverslip. The image at http://www.flickr.com/photos/pwnell/8033933321/ was created by melting some crystals between the slide and coverslip.

I love these, feels like I'm looking at a satellite image of a very strange and beautiful planet.
