These images are completely natural formations of crystalline amino acids.  The crystals were grown on glass slides at home and photographed in panorama using polarizing filters to take advantage of the birefringent properties of the crystals.  The combination of polarized light and this birefringence lends the colors to the otherwise transparent structures.
