Wine Diamonds

Secondary electron image of tartrate crystals, sometimes called wine diamonds found on the bottom of a red wine cork. Chemically these crystals are known as potassium bitartrate. They’re formed when tartaric acid, a natural component found in grapes, binds with potassium under cold conditions to form a crystalline salt. (Image collected by Darlene McAllister.)

Expanded Vermiculite

Flakes of raw vermiculite concentrate are micaceous in appearance and contain interlayer water in their structure. When the flakes are heated rapidly at a temperature above 870° C, the water flashes into steam, and the flakes expand into accordion like particles. This process is called exfoliation, or expansion, and the resulting lightweight material is chemically inert, fire resistant, and odorless. In lightweight plaster and concrete, vermiculite provides good thermal insulation. Vermiculite can absorb such liquids as fertilizers, herbicides, and insecticides, which can then be transported as free-flowing solids.
