    Not fungus, relax, resume shooting.
    Enjoy your lens.

    That's not fungus. Fungus normally has very thin tendrils radiating from a central mass.

    It appears to be an imperfection in the adhesive, for whatever reason.

    Shoot it.

    Thanks Kevin,
    Right, when using the magnifyer I saw tiny particles of dust within the cement.
    Couldn't it seem strange Hermagis would let this hapen?
    They were quite renowned for the quality of their work...

    Bubbles in cement tend to look more or less round. Less round if the element is moved around much to center it before applying the curing light. They can be oblong when looked at with magnification. So I think you have a less than perfect recemented lens. If the alignment was good, it will work just fine. And even if there is some slight error there, it is amazing what stopping down will do. Have fun with it.

    I think the lens was poorly re-cemented and ended with a speck of dust stuck between the elements, which is causing that odd pattern of separation.

    As for passing the lens repeatedly through a metal detector, I don't think it would do the lens any harm, but what about your testicles if you are holding the lens?

    Jody:

    The Sheriff's Officer kept hitting the emergency reverse button on the metal scanner as we talked about film photography for a half hour. He said, that in the 80s he we was the photographer for his high school's newspaper.

    As for our testicles: No one held the lens, it just went back and forth on the conveyor belt as it was bombarded with "safe" radiation.
