I've seen this with paraffin, that was too long in the oven before
embedding. After (I think) weeks it comes to saponification of the paraffin
chains. So it makes bubbles like soap.

Histonet experts,can you give me reason why embedded paraffin would have
tiny bubbles  in the block after the cooling process?
Any idea are appreciated
