Advice 1: How to grow a crystal at home with salt

Crystals are substances in which atoms or molecules form an ordered structure. The crystals are very common in nature, they often grow to very large sizes. But it is possible to grow crystal at home. This is enough of minimum resources.
Crystal of copper sulphate.
You will need
  • water;
  • - glass vessel;
  • - salt (sodium chloride, copper sulphate or other);
  • - a thread;
  • pencil or other similar object.
Instruction
1
To prepare a crystal of the selected salt. This will be our seed. You can use ordinary table salt NaCl, then get colorless crystals, but there are other salts that have a color. So, for example, of copper sulfate grow beautiful blue crystals. Tie him to the thread, the thread secure on the pencil (and pen, web, something else, etc.), so that when placing it on the edge of the glass crystal on a string hanging in the center of the glass.
2
Fill a glass jar with water. Add a bit of salt is selected. Stir to make sure all the salt has dissolved. Add some salt, also achieve its complete dissolution. Do this operation until, until salt ceases to dissolve, i.e., while on the bottom the banks will not precipitate from the salt crystals.
3
After that, you need to heat the resulting solution. To do this, place jar in warm water. Continue to stir. When the jar is heated, the residue dissolved in water.
4
For more reliability, get rid of the remnants of the precipitate by pouring the solution into a new jar.
5
Put a jar of solution in a quiet place with room temperature in which it will not be affected by external influences. You are now ready to be immersed in the solution of our crystal-seed. Do it. Fix the pencil at the edge of the banks. Cover the jar with a sheet of paper.
6
Now you need to wait. Once a week is recommended to update the solution according to the same scheme as described above. The rest of the jar with the solution must not touch.

After a while you will notice how your crystal growing in size.
Note
Try to avoid shaking the vessel in which the crystal is grown!

Advice 2: How to grow a crystal of salt at home

To grow a crystal of their own, in home conditions will be a force even a little familiar with the chemical processes of the people, and the result, as the manufacturing process itself will undoubtedly bring you great pleasure. So, get ready, we begin to conjure and chemotherapy.
How to grow a crystal of salt at home

2
Take a glass of clean water. Water and salt should be in the ratio of 1/2,5, i.e., for example, 100 ml of water you will need at least 250 grams of salt. Slowly add salt to the water and stir until dissolved.

3
Pour the water into a metal container and put on fire. Stirring constantly, heat the water to obtain a saturated saline solution (if necessary, it is recommended to add salt.)

4
Remove the container with the obtained supersaturated solution, and not letting cool, put inside a small rope (ideal would be wool or any other Varsova thread, as it will help crystalhave better secured on the base).
5
Over the next three days begins the crystalization of the salt. Too rapid cooling of the solution can result in an irregular and unattractive form. That is why it should be cooled down slowly, this is best done at room temperature. Then you will surely get the right in the form of fine crystal.
6
Ready crystal , remove from solution and Pat on all sides with a paper towel. If necessary, trim the end of yarn and immediately cover all facets of clear varnish (like nail nails). This operation is mandatory and will help to prevent the crystal from the so-called weathering (i.e., splitting over time, in direct contact with air)
7
As you can see, the growing crystals - very entertaining and a low effort affair. After three days, descended into the water, the thread literally turns into a shiny, glittering necklace that can become a stylish accessory, a decoration on a Christmas tree or just the pride of the first successful witchcraft in the home kitchen!
Useful advice
Note: the quality of water directly depends on the success of the experiment, and the beauty of crystal, so it's best to choose spring or filtered.

Advice 3: How to grow crystal at home

Of course, to grow a crystal diamond in home conditions is impossible. But to get a very beautiful crystal of salt is possible. Because it is fragile and is afraid of water, keep it will have in the transparent box.
How to grow crystal at home
Instruction
1
Decide whether you need the right crystal or it may be some deviations from the correct form (sometimes the second is even more beautiful). In the first case, the water should be distilled and salt - not iodized. In the second case, use water from the tap and any table salt.
2
Boil about half a liter of water. While it boils, being careful not to Ambaritsa steam begin to pour salt in it. For this you can use, for example, a V-shaped cut sheet metal with his hands in the side of the vessel. Continue to pour it until then, until the solution become supersaturated (in the vessel will begin to form small crystalIKI salt).
3
Soak in saturated solution of salt a piece of cardboard. Then dry it and it will be covered with a small crystalof the ICA.
4
One of the largest crystals separate and hang on a string.
5
Pour the supersaturated solution into a clean vessel so that it does not have got a little crystalICA from the walls of the vessel in which were boiling. Let it cool, then introduce into the solution a small crystalIR on the thread. Hitting the bottom, he should not.
6
Leave the vessel in a place where it will not move. Small crystalIR will gradually increase in size. When it reaches your desired size, remove it, then dry it thoroughly and place it in a transparent box.
7
If desired, fabricate a device to illuminate the crystaland LEDs. What it will be, depends on your imagination. To highlight you as one large crystaland several smaller ones. In the latter case, one can make a arrangement made up not only of the crystals, but also from other items. Don't forget to add the background and close the glass composition, as from the touch of crystalyou spoil.
