This Microscopic Time-Lapse of Crystallization is Hypnotic


The folks over at Envisioning Chemistry have created yet another spellbinding time-lapse that will appeal to photography nerds and science nerds alike. Using a polarized light microscope, they captured the kaleidoscope of colors as various substances crystalized in front of their lens.

Envisioning Chemistry is a partnership between the scientists and photographers behind Beauty of Science, and the Chinese Chemical Society. Together, they’ve created various macro and microscopic time-lapses that capture everything from the simple beauty of Hydrogen bubbling in slow motion, to the ripple of an “oscillation reaction” inside a petri dish.
