Crystal Growing Set

Reese got a nice crystal growing set by National Geographic. My sister bought it for me all the way from Singapore. You save quite a bit! Here it is cut throat price! Anyway, today we went straight to work. We prepared solution of emerald green monoammonium phosphate. Now will have to wait for the crystals to grow... not sure how long... maybe days.... will show you the end result when we have a crystal!

The set comes with two kinds of salt with many different colours. Some basic apparatus for growing the solution.
