A Sweet Perspective– By: Keerthi Padmanabhan

Today I saw a grain of sugar under the foldscope. In the pictures I took, it was very hard to focus, so the images look a little blurry. I  saw that the sugar grains  I looked at were rectangular in shape and saw that many of the grains were stuck together. Here is how they looked.(I tried to use a wedge to focus).

    Quite amazing. The type of crystal reflects the molecular structure. I think you should also try other powders, salts of all kinds (dont forget the bath salts). great stuff

    One thing is to redissolve and crystallize to see if you get more regular crystals. You should try Vitamin C too. Look at this post.
