Welcome to My Laboratory: Space Crystals, Pt. III

The space crystals finally grew, but they did not grow far, nor wide.

Rather, they grew a few millimeters in length and fused into a Kool-Aid orange biscuit.



But what did I expect for $10? I mean, really? This?


Some facts about crystals:

-- Crystals are solids in which "the constituent atoms, molecules, or ions are packed in a regularly ordered, repeating pattern extending in all three spatial dimensions."

-- The word "crystal" came from the Greek word "krystallos," which means clear ice.

-- Some people believe crystals have healing powers. Like Amanda, from America's Next Top Model. But not Jesus.

-- The name "Crystal" peaked in popularity in the 1980s.
