Back on topic, I did a little investigation under microscope of human blood preparation mixed with venom from Naja naja (cobra). The result was amazing. Previously, I investigated the venom alone, it contains plenties of flat crystals with sharp edges. When I mixed them both, I witnessed a fantastic phenomenon: the venom quickly lysed almost all RBCs by destroying their cell membranes. After few seconds, I saw no RBCs were left. Wow!
So what are the crystals made of?
