Correct JimBob, Kidney stone surface by Stephen Gschmeissner,
 from the Visions-of Science competition 2003:-

   
" Kidney stones form when salts crystallise out of urine, usually due to a metabolic disorder. The sharp edges seen at high magnification contribute to the pain the stones cause as they become lodged in the kidneys and surrounding areas.

Oh heck, my minds blank, I can't think of what to call it, but it looks like a glass cover that goes over a light bulb.

It looks like a very pretty cut art glass candle stick holder, the ones that hold a small tea lite. Or what some call a votive cup and the candle sits down in the cutout ring inside the beautiful glass votive holder!... Who knows!.....Karen[

Are they all wrongly named (misnomers) [?],
e.g. Strawberries are not actually berries,
(berries have their seeds on the inside).

Nice try, Robert.  Alas, no, all are correctly named.

You are look down the business end of a Waterford Crystals glass  with the last drop of my favourite Whisky Bushmills green label   If you would all like to club together and sent me a bottle I will not refuse it.

If you looked at this the right way it would be a lot easier.

I bet it takes you 60 sec or less to get it......
