Shinsekai's The New World Transparent Specimens are tiny, usually aquatic life forms like fish and seahorses that are put through a process of chemical replacement of the proteins and dyeing of the bones. The result is a transparent creature that glows in eerie vibrant colors. The creatures are then sealed in vials filled with glycerin and preservatives. The specimens can be found in shops around Japan.
