Make Salt Crystals

Crystals look and seem to be very valuable. However, did you know that you can make them right in your own home. This project will help you to make your own salt crystals.
With few instructions and materials, you can make sparkling salt crystals in your home.

 Material and step by step instructions:

Salt is one of the materials that can form crystals. Crystallization is also a method of separation and purification of salt. You can use rock salt to make clear and pure salt crystals. 

Formation and growth of crystals is a slow process. Formation of large salt crystals takes weeks or even months; however, small crystals can be formed in just a few days. In this project you may make different crystals and use them as a part of your display. In your report write what conditions makes a larger crystal.
