Southpath2 Whycoot at St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson MD (a burb north of 
Bawlamer) inquires: 

>>One of our pathologists asked us for a Luzerin Red stain for crystals.<<

Sounds like Alizarin Red, presumably for calcium oxalate crystals in 
mammographic biopsy specimens, particularly useful if the pathologist does 
not have access to a polarizer (hey, some labs won't let the pathologist use 
the pee scope). Pronounced uhLIZZarin.
