Where can I find a website that will show the way crude oil should like when it's pumped from the ground?

I need to know what it should look like and how to tell if there is a problem with it. We have an oil well and it started pumping a frothy looking oil.

    depending on the grade of oil it can look anywhere from a black fluid with a watery viscosity (light sweet crude) to somewhat like asphalt (Alaskan Crude). Look up a web site on crude oil grades and properties of each grade.

    It sounds like the oilwell is starting to cut salt water. The frothiness is probably an emulsion of oil and salt water. It will look like thick cream with oil flecking if it is emulsion. Take some of the "frothy oil" to school and spin it out in a separator or centrifuge. It should look like a greenish black or brown thick liquid with rainbow colors when in the light and will smell a lot like either nail polish or Varsol. (This is the simple version).
