In vitro microscopic study of calcium hydrogen phosphate dihydrate crystals growth patterns

Author : Salman Ahmed, Muhammad Mohtasheemul Hasan and Zafar Alam Mahmood

The purpose of the study is to explore the possible morphological features of calcium hydrogen phosphate dihydrate (brushite) crystals at a glass slide. The study was carried out on a glass slide under microscope to observe the growth patterns. As a result needle, platy, star shape, tetragonal bipyramidal shape crystals were observed. Different patterns of platy crystals like plates with spatial branches and radiating assemblage of platy crystals were also found.
