Caption: Female sex hormone. Polarised light micrograph of crystals of oestrone. Oestrone is one of the six naturally-occurring oestrogens, a class of hormones associated with the development of female reproductive organs and secondary sex characteristics. Oestrone is secreted mainly in the ovaries, and is made by the action of enzymes on pregnenolone. Oestrone sulphate may be used in hormone replacement therapy to treat some clinical symptoms of the menopause. Magnification x25 at 6x7cm size, x12.5 at 35mm size.
