    It's called Diaphinisation and it's a process for studying bone structures that uses chemicals (flamable chemicals) to turn the soft tissue into a transparent white jell and the hard bone and cartilage different colors.

    I *SO* want them to do that to me when I kick it.

    A friend of mine has a diaphinized (?) pig fetus in a similar jar, with pink bones. It is strangely beautiful when the sun shines through the translucent, not-yet-hardened skeleton. I've always coveted it.

    Thanks for posting these!!
