Dear microscopists - I have been working on crystals for the past few weeks trying to get Beer, sports drinks, water and even human tears to reveal their crystals and have had some success. I have written an article which I hope will be of interest to all microscopists and posted it today.

https://www.canadiannaturephotographer.com/crystals_polarizedlight.html

I am attaching a few pictures below from the article. I have also linked to numerous science papers about crystallization, seeds, solvents etc that I believe would be helpful to anyone who wanted to try this form of photomicrography. The identify of the crystals and all the methods I used are in the article for those interested. For those more experienced you might be able to identify the crystals in the pictures and the techniques used.

Cheers
RB

Below are a few pictures from the article.
