A Peek Inside the LED

After turning down the intensity of the light from the LED was able to get a peek inside and could see where the light was coming from. There is a square piece of luminous material with a dark patch in the center. The dark patch appears to be the contact point for a thin wire (whisker) coming down from the top left.

I had a bit of trouble with the focus on this image. I adjusted the image to give the best view of the square. I could see it more clearly by eyeball but I am myopic so I can focus closer than the average individual and get a little extra magnification in addition.
