Well apparently the spam setting is still on hyperactive so you'll have to use this link to see the visuals. imgur.com/a/zjnj7ye

Recently got a microscope for my other projects I have been working on and decided to throw some kratom under the scope.
Figure I might as well do some testing myself and see how many contaminants are appearent.
All these pics are, as is, no gram staining or re hydrating to distinguish plant cells from eachother. This was just gonna be a quicky but turned out to be a two hour session. I'll put some of those up on a later date.
Light view = from the bottom, used to see inside cells
Stereo view = light shining on the object from above.
40x magnification 25 wide range

Green malay ( light view)

Stereo view

Large Crystal (stereo)

Same crystal (Light). On the Bottom right it appears to be classic Aspergillus mycelium. Took more samples and found no more. We breathe thousands of there spores in a day and it is common to fire up allergies during spring and fall months.

Royal bent stereo


Light negative

Over all see allot of alkaloid crystals and plant matter, cant wait to hydrate some so the crystals dissolve providing me with clearer pictures of the actual plant matter and other organisms. Was expecting to see more exciement in the bent samples because they are fermented. Will be a whole new view hydrated i'm sure. :-h
