I wanted to observe the crystallization of sucrose under a microscope. I placed some sugar solution on a slide and found a booklouse feeding on it the next day. It eventually became stuck in the solution. On day 10, the booklouse was clearly feeding on the sugar solution and excreting. On day 12, there was no obvious movement. The following day, it had become part of a sugar crystal. The sugar solution crystallized after many days. Under polarized light, beautiful rainbow colors were produced due to interference. It was as if the booklouse had released some great power as it was taken over by a sugar crystal.
