There is no definitive information about the functions of raphide crystals but it is highly suggested that they serve as a defense mechanism against herbivores. These crystals are commonly found inside a chamber in plant cells that are called idioblasts.

Raphide crystals are supposedly a kind of defense mechanism. They are certain crystals of calcium oxalate the you are most likely to find inside the plant cell.

The penguins of awesomeness

A raphide crystal is a spherical ball that has little spikes on them. They are blue and they will be poisonous when they have calcium oxalate.

Raphides are crystals of calcium oxalate often found in plant cells. They are very sharp and their function seems to be to keep animals from feeding on the plants.

it kills the bacteria like the other said

They don't tend to occupy a particular colour since they are crystals it is assumed that it is clear.

needle-shaped crystals of calcium oxalate as the monohydrate or calcium carbonate as aragonite, found in more than 200 families of plants.

---- 2.Answer: I believe the predominant theory of their purpose is defense. As far as I know, they are predominantly found in plants and would serve to irritate the mouth/throat of any predators.

The raphides are crystals of calcium oxalate located in plant cells. They are believed to be a defense mechanism against plant predators because they are likely to tear the throat or esophagus of any animal ingesting them.

It forms a complex with crystal violet stain which stains G Positive bacteria violet .

The answer depends on the crystal!The answer depends on the crystal!The answer depends on the crystal!The answer depends on the crystal!

Iodine serves as a mordant by binding to the crystal violet. An insoluble iodine-crystal violet complex is formed that allows gram positive bacteria to remain purple after this step in the gram staining procedure.

Crystal violet stains G+ bacteria and G- bacteria at the beginning of the gram staining process. It is later washed away from the G- bacteria by the alcohol/acetone rinse.Shorter Answer:Stains G+ bacteria
