Looks like i was spotted by the Sulfur crested Cockatoo.
Nicatonic Acid, or Vitamin B3 looks interesting under the microscope and displays some birefringence.
Rhenium is one of the rarest elements in the earths crust, and has one of the highest boiling points at an estimated 5873K. Ever wonder what it looks like under the microscope?
Sodium thiosulfate is a inorganic, white crystalline substance that displays incredible birefringence, why not have a peek?
I was never a fan of snakes, but do have some level of appreciation for them; that is, I appreciate them being behind the glass :). This snake was within the Reptile Enclosure enjoying a bask.
Polarized light microscopy brings out incredible colors in chemicals. Have a look at Bromine under the microscope.

Holmium (a metal) looks fairly interesting by polarized light microscopy.
