The crystal growing kit is great for an at home project the kids will love or a classroom science project sure to amaze students. Children and teachers alike can enjoy the fun of growing their own crystals with this all in one set. Crystals are solids made up of small, regular 3 dimensional shapes. They are chemically bonded together in an ordered fashion and join together at regular angles. Though the shapes of crystals vary, they are grouped into 7 systems: Cubic, Tetragonal, Hexagonal, Rhombohedral, Orthorhombic, Monoclinic, and Triclinic. After growing your own crystals, you can challenge your kids or a teacher can challenge students to identify the different systems to which they belong.
This kit includes: a large bag of white crystals, 1 small bag of glow powder, 1 crystal base, 1 transparent crystal stand, 1 container, 1 stirring spoon.
