This is a scanning electronic microscopic image showing crystal structures of a mixture of two aromatic compounds. The crystal growth is induced by controlled solvent evaporation under the protection of nitrogen gas. Two organic ingredients follow very different growth patterns, with one forming large flower petals and the other one favoring the "snow flake" morphology.
