Just a bit curious here, what are the smallest structured known to science that can display bold beautiful colors?

These bubbles are quite black, so they have a significant component that is not gas[/qu
The bubbles look black when they are lit from below and when lit from above they look transparent and sometimes white. This pyrite is very strange, it seems to have a thing for spheres, I have seen spherical structures grow out of the acid solution and there are even tiny spheres embedded in some of the pyrite crystal, to date no can explain any of this. There are over 27 different elements detected in this pyrite, I was curious as to which one might be creating these heavy bubbles.
You can upload it to Youtube and just post the link here.Okay, I uploaded the video to YouTube but the link for some reason isn't working for me, so just go to the YouTube site and in the search box type: Strange bubbles or fragment to bubbles and that should bring up the videos.
Did you see the bubbles form somewhere above the bottom before they fall down to the bottom?I had put a small fragment of pyrite (about 3mm) in a small plastic container and put enough acid to cover it, as I watched it under the microscope, I could see bubbles form at the top of the fragment and slowly drift to the bottom of the solution. In some of the test I would crush the fragments and place a gram or so on a slide and put a couple drops of acid and when I looked at it, there would be several bubbles just sitting on the bottom. I do have a video of the fragment test, but I think the file is too large to upload on here. I was curious about this because, I bought a piece of normal pyrite and when I do the same test I get a foamy blob like substance and not bubbles like this.
Separation of sulphide ores by attaching them to bubbles has a long historyHmm, can froth flotation be performed on a microscope slide using just a couple drops of acid?
What sort of acid?The acid used was muriatic acid and stone is pyrite. I have photos of some of the acid solutions with scores of the bubbles showing. I'll see if I can dig up a few and post them.
