Crystal growing goodness

Posted by aonomus on January 1, 2010

Last week I took a 50mL beaker and loaded it with a few mL of CuSO4 saturated solution and left it in a dessicator loaded with some sodium hydroxide prills. After a few days, crystal growth started.

I think it would be fun to try to grow crystals of pretty much every salt I have in my possession… perhaps I need to improvise a bigger dessicator.
