Laboratory-made crystals of NaCl encasing the haloarchaeon, Halorubrum saccharovorum

Laboratory-made crystals of NaCl encasing the haloarchaeon, Halorubrum saccharovorum. The cloudiness of the halite (NaCl) crystals is due to the large number of brine inclusions. Each crystal is ca. 1 cm square, © Terry J. McGenity. (For more details see: McGenity TJ & Oren A (2012) Hypersaline environments.
