Microscopic Images - Heartful Vitamin C

My husband Tim found this amazing website of microscopic images….. this one is really amazing to me! This is a microscopic image of Vitamin C crystals. Look! They have double hearts – hearts within hearts. No wonder it’s good for us! Go to the website to see many other wondrous views into the microscopic wonders of life. (I turned this image 90 degrees so they would be “standing up.”
