I've only seen it once. Imagine the whitish color of ice that
contains lots of microscopic air bubbles. It is not large, just a
spec in the tube. Lily had it at once at a spot in the tubing that
had been crimped. That is... the tube had a permanent deformation
that would not come out. The crystal(s) formed there and the tube was
blocked. The pump complained when she tried to bolus for a meal.
That was a couple of years ago.
