Calcium Oxalate on Garlic's skin

Post by RogelioMoreno »

Inspired by Litonotus and Waldo, here two stacked images that show crystals of Calcium Oxalate on the garlic's external skin.

Nikon Plan Apo 10x/0.45, polarized light + retarder.
Mag.: 10 x 1.5 x 2 = 30x on sensor.

Very nice. Is this the dry paper-like skin on the bulb?

Very nice indeed. How is this 'mounted' on the slide? Dry or in a drop of water, with a coverslip or not?

Thank you for your comments.

Yes, it is the paper like skin (external) on the bulb.

It was a wet mount, the skin was in water for hours then I put it on a coverlisp (I am using an inverted microscope) and put an slide over it (to flat it with the weight of the slide).
