• Copper sulfate crystals

    Copper sulfate with a characteristic beautiful bright blue color is best suited for growing crystal at home. Unlike crystals grown on salt, a crystal of copper sulfate will be sparkling, transparent and bright. This will require: -Copper sulfate -Woolen thread -Metal wire -Water (boiling water) For 250 ml faceted tumbler. it will be necessary to take about 300 grams of copper sulfate. In a glass of hot boiled water pour the bluestone, stirring it with a spoon. The hotter the water, the faster the vitriol will dissolve. Add the vitriol until the solution is saturated, that is, until the vitriol ceases to dissolve. The sediment at the bottom should be 3-5 cm high. You can grow an ordinary solid crystal, but to be more beautiful, we will give it a shape. To do this, take a metal wire up to 10 cm long and wrap it with wool thread.Remember that the crystals will be half transparent, so it is better to take a thinner thread so that it is unobtrusive. Give the wire the desired crystal shape: a circle, a square, a star or a heart. Place the wire in a glass with a saturated solution of copper sulphate in a dark place for several days, depending on the size of the crystal you are going to grow. For small crystals, a week will be enough.

    Small growths of crystals begin to appear on the second day. A glass is just better not to shake. As soon as you begin to notice that the liquid gradually begins to evaporate, add some warm water to the glass. The crystal pictured in the photo was grown for a week. Agree, this idea of ​​growing crystals at home is the most original and unique!
