Under the Microscope – Potassium Permanganate

This episode of “Cool Stuff Under the Microscope” focusses on Potassium Permanganate, a chemical known for its distinctive purple colour. Whilst the scope of it's use is outside of the purpose of this episode, more information can be found on the link above.

The following image was captured by analysing a Potassium Permanganate crystal on a glass slide through the Radical Microscope (affiliate-link), with the images being focus stacked into one image (below). Images were captured with a Nikon D5300 Digital camera, with the focus stacking being carried out in Adobe Photoshop, and final editing being carried out in Lightroom (affiliate-link).

The focus was slightly off, but the structure is nonetheless facinating.

As always, if you have any idea's on things to image under the microscope (affiliate-link) don't hesitate to let me know either through this site or on social media.
