6. Spherulites or microcrystals.

 Spherulites Spherulites: transparent birefringent clusters. This is a good point for optimization.
Try additives or seeding.

 SpherulitesSpherulites can look like droplets.

SpherulitesSpherulites can look like transparent clusters.

When using polarized light, spherulites show dark and light parts.

Spherulites Out of spherulites grown crystals.

Microcrystals Microcrystals after streak seeding.

Microcrystals are small particles where edges and birefringence are visible if the magnification is high enough.
