This is frustrating because I've worked in a lab
A black lab peed down my back once. Different kind of lab I guess.

Is it some kind of dispenser? Does the top part press down over the bottom part and dispense something from the bottom (or top)?

Seeing your photographic skills haven't improved just yet......I'll bite a wittle.

Some sort of prism?

On closer inspection it appears to definitely not be translucent. Is it some kind of counter? Does it cut something?

I was thinking along the lines of a blood tester where the needle clicks out under pressure.

or a gadget for measuring controlled dasages of a chemical into testubes.

Jeninga75 is the closest so far.

jeekinz it can exhibit a slight prismatic effect, but it`s not a prism.

ewww... not Quite, but I will give it too you.

it`s an unopened pack of 50 Microscope slides, they`re in a Cellophane wrap and the line across it a pull tab to open the pack.

Nice Work! :D

That Jeekinz is WHY I took the picture in the way that I did! to show that light IS passing through it, on a plain surface top lit NOBODY would get it, my way you can see the slides inside quite well.
