“For Christmas I got a packet of “Space Age Crystals” from my auntie and uncle. I wanted to see what they would look like growing quickly, so my Dad and I set up a camera and this is the result after a month. This is 18,000 times faster than real time, with one picture every ten minutes.
The strange “trees” grew up the sides of the plastic container and also straight from the peaks of the crystals that were poking out of the water.
Notice how the water level drops quickly a couple of times – this was on very hot days when we had a window open in the room.
The next step is to pick out a well shaped crystal and dissolve the rest. Stay tuned.“
