Swirling crystals of the non-essential amino acid beta alanine. It is used in the body to increase the performance of muscles.

Looks like a face to me 🤔...
A crystal flake made of GABA and Epsom salt.
GABA or gamma aminobutyric acid inhibits nerve transmission in the brain, calming nervous activity. It is sold as a supplement to act as a tranquilizer, but taken orally it shouldn't have an effect since it cannot cross the blood brain barrier. It is believed to be involved in the regulation of muscle tone and possibly also support for the production of other hormones which are needed to build muscle cells. Image is stitched from 9 images at 40x under polarized light microscopy.

Not sure what to call this one 🤔. Another of the amino acid beta alanine dissolved in a salty solution.

"Rainbow Volcano 🌈 🌋"
Vitamin C crystals under polarized light microscopy at 40x magnification. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient commonly found in fruits and vegetables. It helps the body make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is also needed for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining bones and teeth.

Iron (II) (Ferrous) Sulfate crystals under polarized light at 40x. These have been forming slowly under a coverslip.
Known since ancient times as Green Vitiriol or Copperas. It is used to blacken leather, a component of ink, as a dye fixative, and in the production of cement and iron compounds.
More notably it is used as a medicine to treat anemia caused by iron deficiency commonly experienced by expecting mothers.

Happy Friday! Hope you all have an excellent weekend. This is an image of Dopamine crystals at 40x and then a detail shot at 100x under polarized 🔬 Dopamine is a neurotransmitter known for its function in neural pathways responsible for desire, pleasure, and positive reinforcement.

Vanilla crystals formed on an old light bulb 💡. Illuminated using cross polarized light.

More 🍄 this is a cross section through the cap stitched together from about 100 images at 25x magnification. The tissue is about 16 microns thick. You can see the trails of wax on the bottom where it melted. This is viewed under polarized compensated light.

I've been working on some mushroom histology lately, it's a little different than what I usually work with but I have gotten some pretty decent results. This is a section through the gills of a mushroom I found at work after the rain, just a small brown kind. I stained it with toluidine blue. I left it embedded in the wax for this stain, the little crystalline wax structures are visible around the gills under polarized light.

Sugar crystals that formed in the bottom of a glass that I left out after mixing some hummingbird sugar water in it. Viewed using cross polarized light and a macro lens.

What do you see? I think it looks like some psychedelic Mothra.
A mixture of the amino acids beta alanine and l-glutamine under polarized light microscopy at 40x.
Hopefully suitably trippy for your Friday viewing pleasure. Have a great weekend!

Skeletal muscles at 100x magnification under polarized light microscopy. The green cells in between are connective tissue. In some spots you can see alternating bands in the muscle. Skeletal muscle is made of these alternating bands of fibers. One type of band is the A band which has the thick myosin filaments extending through. These A bands are anisotropic and fluoresce under polarized light. Unlike the other bands they do not shorten during a muscle contraction.
