Salt Crystals

The image on the left depicts the Great Salt Plains in Oklahoma. This area is (or at least used to be) open to the public and people (mostly kids) could come dig up the crystals, commonly called Salt Crystals, shown on the right. They may not be very spectacular, but it sure make a fun field trip.

The crystal caves under Naica Mountain in Mexico are incredible, resembling the fictional Fortress of Solitude. The crystals are enormous, up to 36 feet long. Extremely warm temps in the underground cavern seem to have contributed to the crystals' impressive growth.

This YouTube video posted by WaysAndHow shows how to grow your own crystals using sugar, for the purposes of jewelry making, prop creation, and more craft items. You'll need a stove, a pot to boil water, a jar, and a paperclip (optional).

Directions on how to grow an Alum Crystal are found at the link! Alum crystals grow quickly, and aren't toxic in any way, so it's safe to experiment with! Alum can be found in the grocery store in the spices section. You will also require hot tap water, nylon fishing line, a couple clean jars, a coffee filter, and a pencil, ruler, or knife.
