Grow your own Amazing Crystal Garden in just a matter of days!
The Amazing Crystal Garden pack contains limestone pieces which, when placed in distilled white vinegar (available from supermarkets, not included in the kit) and the instructions followed, will produce real crystals! Food dyes (not included) can also be added to the vinegar to create coloured crystals!
How it works: Crystals form in nature when molecules gather together for stability and the liquids present cool and harden. This can occur in magma, as lavaflow cools and hardens, or when water evaporates in a natural setting, leaving mineral clusters (suchs as in a cave). This kit uses a chemical reaction to commence the process of crystalisation. Limestone (Calcium Carbonate) reacts with the Vinegar (specifically the Acetic Acid component) to form a substance called Calcium Acetate. Historically called acetate of lime, Calcium Acetate is a salt, which is widely used as a food additive.
Fun Fact: Calcium Acetate is required in the manufacture of Tofu!
Hot Tip: Your crystals will naturally be white. If you'd like to make them different colours, make sure to divide them up in separate containers before adding the vinegar and food colouring!
Good to know: It can take up to two weeks for your crystals to grow (it will depend on how much vinegar you've added, and how warm the surroundings are).
This pack includes: Limestone pieces and step-by-step instructions
This pack does not include: distilled vinegar, food colourings (optional) or vessels for growing in
Recommended for ages 6+ (when instructions are followed, this kit is completely safe!)
If your child cannot read and/or follow instructions without assistance, adult supervision is prudent
Break open these white quartz geodes to discover the beautiful crystals hidden within!
Geodes are spherical or egg-shaped rocks containing a hollow cavity which is lined with crystals. They are sometimes called Thunder Eggs! Geodes are often formed as volcanic rocks cool, with trapped liquid inside crystallising to form a cavity. Every geode is unique!
Fun and functional - these thermochromic pencils change colour in the warmth of your hand!
At room temperature, the pencils are darker in colour. When warmed to approximately 30 degrees celsius, they magically change colour to pastel versions of their original colour. Eg. Purple becomes light pink, orange becomes yellow, blue becomes light blue, dark green becomes light green.
