This amazing kit contains everything that you will need to create real crystals: children will go through the process of mixing a specialised saturated liquid solution with the included crystal growth inducing seeding mixture. Once complete, simply sit back and watch the gradual expansion and the growth of the crystals over several days.
The illustrated instructions provide easy to understand guidance on what to do, and how to create the best looking crystal display. Kids will learn about the chemical reaction involved in creating the specialised saturated solution, why a saturated solution is necessary, and how the particles in the water behave when forming back together in crystallised form.
The fully grown crystal will measure approximately 5cm diameter by 4cm high. No crystal grows in the same way, so each 4M Crystal Growing Kit gives each child a truly unique formation.
For 10 years+
- Includes 3 coloured crystal seeding mixtures: red, blue and clear white.
- Simply use different proportions of the coloured seeding mix to grow a whole range of different coloured crystals.
- Crystals will grow to a diameter of approximately 5cm and a height of approximately 4cm.
- Size, shape and colour of crystals will vary according to experimental conditions.
