Coin (Euro) 

for Anon

"One euro coin, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Euro coins and banknotes became legal tender across most of Europe on 1st January 2002. The national currencies replaced by the Euro ceased to be legal tender on 30th June 2002. This side of the coin, showing its denomination and a map of the European Union (EU), is the same for all the countries’ coins. The other side varies from country to country. Magnification unknown."

Finger Nail

Nail base. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the base of a finger nail. The nail (grey) is composed of a hard translucent form of the protein keratin. The top layer of the skin is composed of dead keratinised cells that are continuously sloughed off and replaced with new cells from below. Magnification: x30 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.

(I am both disgusted and interested by this picture)

Human Eye -Iris


Iris of the eye. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the inner surfaces of the iris and adjoining structures in the human eye. At far right (blue) is the edge of the pupil, the hole that allows light into the eye. Coloured mauve is the iris which controls the size of the pupil and therefore how much light will enter. The band of folds down the centre (red) are the ciliary processes. These secrete fluids that nourish neighbouring parts of the eye. (STEVE GSCHMEISSNER/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY)

Chicken’s Egg

"The holes or micropores which can be seen in this image, enable gaseous exchange of the developing embryo. Most of the egg shell material is calcium carbonate which accounts for about a tenth of the egg’s weight. Magnification x4156 at an image size of 10cm wide."
