Hard Rime is that milky ice that forms on object during a cold snap with freezing fog and wind. Under an electron microscope the top has these little spikey points that are echoed in single pops of contrasting color. The sides of the ice crystal have parallel lines with smaller branches that break of and meet in regular points like the sides of the hat.

The sample used about 27g of each color.
