Fig 2. Crystals such as calcium oxalate are readily observed
under polarized light microscopy. Here a polarized view is shown of the
same case illustrated in the previous figure, with numerous calcium
oxalate crystals characterized by birefringence and organizing in fan
or sheave-shaped arrays. There is associated tubular degeneration.
