Canada balsam

Canada balsam is a turpentine made from the resin of the balsam fir tree of North America. The resin is a viscous, sticky, colourless or yellowish liquid that becomes a transparent yellowish solid when it dries out. since it forms an amorphous solid, and does not crystallise, it maintains its optical properties. It was used to make permanent microscope slides, and though it has been largely superseded by more modern synthetic mountants, some people still prefer it.
