How to grow salt crystals

How to grow salt crystals

Кристаллы издавна использовались человечеством в качестве магических камней. Согласно эзотерическому учению любой кристалл или камень способен накапливать космическую энергию и делиться ей с окружением. Т.е. если успешный человек некоторое время носит с собой такой кристалл или камень, то последний способен сконцентрировать в себе положительную энергию успеха, которая в последующем сделает этого человека еще более успешным. Поэтому приступая к сегодняшнему проекту запаситесь положительными эмоциями. Кстати, учеными установлено и доказано, что человеческие эмоции напрямую влияют на строение объекта. Итак, приступим.

You will need:

  • alum (what is it read just below, and you can find them in pharmacies and sometimes in grocery stores);
  • glass jar or glass;
  • thread or line;
  • tweezers.

Instruction.

1. Alums are double salts, readily soluble in hot water and capable of crystallizing in the form of colorless (slightly unclear) cubes and octahedra. Alums have long been used in the food industry to correct taste and prevent digestion. In the light industry as a mordant in the dyeing of woolen and cotton yarns and fabrics. Due to the fact that salts of trivalent metals cause denaturation of proteins, alum is used as a tanning agent in the leather industry during alumina. In the photo industry they are used for gel emulsion based photo emulsions, and in medicine as an astringent, cauterizing and hemostatic agent.

2. Pour half a cup of hot water (preferably even boiling water) and add there 2 tablespoons of alum.

3. Mix everything thoroughly, so that the alum completely dissolved and the water acquired a hazy shade.

4. Place the jar on a window sill or other quiet place, and cover with a thin paper (preferably porous, which is used in filters). After a few hours you will see that small crystals formed on the bottom of the jar and its walls. Leave the jar at about 12 - 16 hours. If you feel that you are in a good mood - go to the bank with growing crystals for about five minutes and reflect on the beautiful. This way you will charge your crystals (if you certainly believe it).

5. When you decide that enough time has passed, take the jar of crystals and drain the excess alum solution. You will be surprised at how many small crystals have formed!

6. If you are satisfied with such small crystals, you can no longer continue, and use them as an interior decor or for your creativity. But if you want more crystals, choose the largest ones (use tweezers, this will make it easier) and use them as seeds to create larger ones.

7. Once you have selected the largest crystal, take a string or line and tie a knot around the crystal. Tie the other end of the thread to the pencil (pen, stick, etc.).

8. Затем приготовьте еще один квасцовый раствор (также как было описано ранее) и поместите туда кристалл, привязанный на ниточке. Обратите внимание, нитка должна быть достаточно длинной, чтобы кристалл был погружен в раствор, и в тоже время он не должен касаться дна банки.

9. Leave the jar in a quiet place for a few days to let the crystal grow. Periodically check the crystal growth and do it in a good mood! That's all!
