Nice and interesting.
Do you know how old this egg is, and will you be able to follow the process until hatching?

Maybe next year, I am preparing a work about microcosm in the freshwaters of my city.

Very intriguing. Why do you think it polarizes so dramatically?

No, I am not asking how you polarized it. I meant, what elements that the egg consists of do you think reacts to polarized light this way? Some mineral?

Probably you're right about the composition
