Brian Johnson photographed a testosterone melt specimen some years ago with the help of a Nikon Coolpix 4500 camera attached to a Leitz SM-Pol polarizing microscope. The bands and patterns from the crystal growth (yes, testosterone crystals) make for quite a psychedelic sight with all these blazing rainbow swirls of every colour imaginable. Possibly explains why gym wear can get pretty colourful.
