A focus stacked shot of a back corner of a horsefly eye thanks @carrie.kel
for donating the subject. The tiny ommatidia are visible under reflected polarised light here. Each circular facet is the visible part of a light sensitive optical column.
This focus stack is of 70 -30 second exposure images at different focus points combining all the infocus areas.

Some images of the wing scales of a deceased moth I found. Done at around 200x magnificiation under reflected polarized light.
Scales on a moth or butterfly wing are responsible for the colorations we see, which can be used for camouflage, warning, display, and the regulation of body temperature. They also help an individual free itself from a spider web by coming loose leaving the insect unstuck.

Crystals made up of the amino acids beta-alanine and L-Taurine. Often found in energy drinks, Taurine is a conditional amino acid meaning our bodies can make it, instead of needing to obtain it from our diet except in infants and people with certain disorders. Infant formula often has taurine added to it as cows milk does not contain enough. Meat and fish are the best dietary sources. It is taken by some to treat congestive heart failure, liver disease, epilepsy, cystic fibrosis, and ADHD among other things and has been shown to improve mental performance.

A crystalline mixture of the amino acids beta alanine and l-glutamine. Viewed under rheinberg illumination which uses multicolored filters to optically stain transparent materials.

Working on crystals of phenylalanine thanks for the suggestion @phenylalaninemusic
Viewed under polarized light microscopy with a wavelength shifting compensator giving the lovely background coloring.
Phenylalanine is an amino acid, one of the building blocks of proteins though its role in human physiology is not completely understood.
While found in mammalian breast milk there are individuals whom suffer from phenylketonuria. This condition is caused by a lack of the proper enzymes to metabolize the phenylalanine and they must be careful how much they ingest. This can become problematic as some food and drinks are made with it, notably diet soft drinks sweetened with aspartame.

Made it to another Friday! These are darkfield polarized Dopamine crystals at 40x 🔬 Integral to the function of our neural reward pathways, and motor coordination, the destruction of Dopamine secreting neurons in the brain results in Parkinsons disease.

This is an expandable plastic mesh that was used to protect a cable or wire during shipping. Under polarized light the colors seem to change the closer you get to the flexing point.

Ibuprofen crystals under polarized light 🔬 also known as Advil, Motrin, and Nurofen among many others. It is in the NSAID (non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs) family, along with Aspirin and Aleve, and is used to treat many conditions like pain, fever, and inflammation such as those resulting from painful menstrual periods, migraines, and rheumatoid arthritis. It was created during UK research into a safer alternative to Aspirin and patented by the Boots Group in 1961. The first test was performed by one of the scientists who used it to treat a really bad hangover.

Something vaguely new, Carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) crystals. Made up of the amino acids beta-alanine and histidine it is highly concentrated in muscle and brain tissues.
Carnosine and carnitine were discovered by Russian chemist Vladimir Gulevich,
Carnosine is an antioxidant and considered a geroprotector or anti-aging compound as it reduces the telomere shortening rate.

This looks like a maelstrom to me 🤔
Crystals of crystal violet dye aka gentian violet.
Used to differentiate gram positive and gram negative bacteria in the common gram stain as well as fingerprinting, inks, and dyes.
Its antiseptic properties against gram positive bacteria and fungi like Candida, Strep and Staph species led to its use in 1890 to treat many diseases before newer antibiotics: thrush, yeast infections, tinea, athlete’s foot, jock itch, and ringworm; also Impetigo and Ich in fish.
Starting in the 1990s interest in its use has renewed due to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Recent studies have shown it to be effective in treating tumors, some viruses, Chagas disease, and helminth parasites like flukes and tapeworms.
