GEMSTONES AND MINERALS STUDIES

The subject for this piece is a crystal batch my daughter and I grew from the National Geographic “Mega Crystal Growing Lab”. She got a crystal growing kit and I was pretty excited to help her  create this crystal. We carefully mixed together the water and solution, timed the duration of stirring, poured the solution into a cup, and put a grow light on it. We waited patiently for the crystals to grow and checked them at least once a day. Over the course of about 2 weeks, the crystal points slowly emerged from the purple solution.
