Clue: the two different substances above could both be found in a pizza.

Waht's new??

BTW, Hadrian never said if it was a ham or not.

I am still thinking about the one ROBERT put up. I have a good one to put up but won't until after at least one of the two above are solved. Stay tuned!

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.
