Who doesn’t love crystals? Now you can grow your very own, right at home! Unlike almost every other crystal growing kit out there, Crystal Explosion™ doesn’t need a stove or a microwave – just add hot tap water and stir in the Crystalizer™ mix. Put your cup in the fridge, and within 24 hours it will be full of beautiful needle-like crystals. Included are two more fun experiments, the last of which grows an awesome mega crystal!
Unlike most crystal growing kits, Crystalizer Mix™ is safe for kids to handle and use. Make a solution and actually see the results of something called precipitation, not to mention evaporation. Crystal Explosion™ teaches a little bit about molecules, how the different types of crystals form, and why different crystals look the way they do. You can even experiment with finding your favorite crystal solution formula!
