What am I seeing when I look at a cell of pollen in the hive and I see what looks like coarse crystals of salt on top of the pollen?

There is a good chance you are seeing shreds of capping wax. I believe the dearth has started in your area too and the bees are possibly getting into their stores. Could also be sugar crystals. Pictures help.
