Crystal Garden

Watch crystals grow!
This often used project provides wonder and excitement as the crystals grow.



Materials:

6-7 barbecue charcoals or stones (1 to 2 inches across)
4-6 tablespoons table salt
4-6 tablespoons liquid laundry bluing (see NOTE below)
4-6 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon ammonia (be careful using ammonia around children)
food coloring


Collect several small pieces of limestone, brick, coal, or barbecue charcoal. You may want to try a bowl of each to determine which material grows the best crystals. Place the charcoal or stones clustered together in the bowl. Mix all of the ingredients together, except the food coloring, in the order listed using the same amount of salt, bluing, and water for each batch made. Pour the mixture very slowly over the stones with a spoon. The mixture may not be dissolved depending on the number of tablespoons of ingredients used. You may want to make different batches using different amounts of ingredients to see which works best. Drop food coloring over the coated stones. Using different colors produces a variegated crystal garden. Crystals should begin to form in about 20 minutes and continue growing for a day or two. Adding any excess mixture to the bottom of the bowl over the next few days may keep the garden growing longer. This creation will crumble very easily, so don't move it around too much.

Planet Dictionary

A planet (from the Greek planete means "wanderer" or more forcefully "vagrant, tramp") is an object in orbit around a star that is not a star in its own right. Much like "continent," "planet" is a word without a precise definition, with history and culture playing as much of a role as geology and astrophysics
