Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Each image is created by squeezing a drop of our favourite drinks onto a slide. The droplets are allowed to dry out and crystallize and then the slide is placed under the microscope and a picture is taken. By using a standard light microscope with a camera attached, the light source is polarized and passed through the crystal.

It can take up to four weeks for the alcohol to dry out completely in an airtight container, and the whole process can take up to three months.

These images are internet photos that I found interesting. A research scientist called Michael Davidson discovered the microphotographic process for alcohol crystals. The BevShots link has lots more pictures ...

Very interesting! Is this process your own invention?
