The Pretty Patterns of Crystallization

It's so cool when people who have access to hi-tech equipment share the stuff they see with the rest of us. Photographer Jens Braun dissolved some vitamin C and then let it recrystallize under a microscope fitted with a camera, using polarized light and everything. We get to see the action in various speeds and colors. Even if you don't understand what's going on (and few truly do), the process is beautiful. It's the conjunction of art and science. Or you might say that the natural world is a work of art, but we aren't able to see all of it without the help of an artist.  -via Digg
