    Love the beautiful color pattern around the grains. I wonder why ginger would glow like that?

    Could it be spectrum refractions around/through the thinner sections of crystalline ginger? Any crystallographers out there who can “shed light” on this (pardon the pun)?

      Hi Nardia,
      Good question. The angle of the light really made a difference. I was surprised by the apparent transparency/translucence of the ginger. I had to handle this slide very gingerly. (Sorry I love puns too. ;-D )
