    Introduction: Tears consist of a variety of biological substances in addition to salts. Since the structures observed through a microscope are mostly crystallized salt, the tear on drying results in unique formations depending on its composition which varies for different tears. Materials and Methods: The three types of tears namely basal, reflex and emotional or psychic were collected from each participant on glass slides. Tears were labeled, and crystallized patterns were observed under a microscope. Results: It was observed that all three tears exhibited distinct crystal structures, but remained almost similar in all six individuals. In other words, all basal tears looked the same, all reflex tears looked the same, and all psychic tears as well. Conclusion: Tears produced for various reasons under various circumstances have different compositions and hence form distinct patterns when allowed to crystallize.
