A perfectly cleared and stained mouse.
Diaphonization is the process of clearing the flesh with chemicals to make it completely clear and then staining the bones and/or cartilages to make them visible. This specimen has had the bones and cartilage dyed different colours to make them very visible.
This is a complicated chemical procedure but as you can see yields incredibly intricate and beautiful results, with every single bone clearly visible!
