    I've worked with layers for 5 years both commercially and on the backyard scale. I have never seen anything like this. I'm just curious if anyone else has. First two pictures are of the deposit, in tact. The following pictures are of what the deposit looked like upon cutting it open. The inside also contained a milky pinkish fluid. Has any one seen anything like this before?
