Crystal Grow your own, at homeconditions will be under the force of even a little familiar with chemical processes, people, and the result, as well as the manufacturing process itself, of course, it will take great pleasure.
So, get ready, we begin to cast and "khimichit".
You will need
- Color soluble salt (or dichloridenickel sulphate) or sodium salt- spring or filtered water, a metal container, a plate, a rope (or wool pile yarn), colorless nail polish.
For starters buy a color soluble salt,for example, dichloride or nickel sulphate. Buy this substance can be in almost any drugstore or order via the Internet. If you can not get the above material is also suitable common table salt.
Take a glass of clean water. Water and salt must be in a ratio of 1 / 2.5, i.e., for example, 100 ml of water, you need at least 250 grams of salt. Slowly sprinkle in salt water and stir until dissolved.
Pour the water into a metal container and placeon fire. stirring constantly, heat the water to produce supersaturated brine (salt is recommended to add an additional, if necessary.)
Remove the container with the resulting supersaturated solution and, without letting cool, dip into a small rope (ideal would be wool or any other pile thread as help crystalhave better secured to the base).
Over the next three days begins crystalization salt. Too rapid cooling of the solution may result in irregular and unattractive form. That is why it should be cooled slowly, this is best done at room temperature. Then you will surely get the right shape, graceful crystals.
Ready crystal remove from the solution and blot on all sidespaper towel. If necessary, cut the end of the woolen thread and immediately cover all facets of clear varnish (suitable regular nail polish). This operation is optional and will help prevent crystal the so-called weathering (i.e., cleavage with time in direct contact with air)
As you can see, growing crystals - very entertaining and does not require largeefforts matter. After three days of string lowered into the water literally turns into a brilliant, sparkling necklace that can be a stylish accessory, an ornament on a Christmas tree or just the pride of the first successful witchcraft in the home kitchen!
