Hi there one and all

I have very little microbiology experience. I have been using MRS 
broth for some lactic acid bacteria. Once I have made the broth 
according to instructions and have allowed it to stand for a few days 
in a tube, something looking like blue crystals or particulate matter 
appears at the surface.

Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong? Can I use the broth 

All answers appreciated.
