The picture and your comment make me remember some of the chemistry I learned long ago. Every compound has its distinctive crystal shape, in which the crystals naturally grow. Of course, they can be broken mechanically - and the picture shows some evidence of some grains being abraded to rounded corners.
thanks for the additional information Tim.

Bob, ya' got great taste . Back in my first science course in junior high, I remember be fascinated by the fact that the neutralization reaction of hydrogen chloride (hydrochloric acid) with sodium hydroxide (caustic), both of which are bad news for human tissue, yields NaCl which we add to food to give it some zest.

hey buddy, sounds like your interest in chemistry started many years ago.

I even didn't know about existence of such lenses
thanks for a photo and information, Bob
they are reasonably priced ZZ, takes a bit getting used to on the focus.
