In order to grow a crystal, you need to make a solution which maximizes the chances for the solute particles to come together and form a nucleus, which will grow into your crystal.
Copper sulfate crystals naturally form blue diamonds. These crystals are extremely easy to grow. Simply dissolve copper sulfate into a cup of boiling water until no more will dissolve.
Allow the container to rest undisturbed overnight. It’s best to collect the crystals with a spoon or toothpick since touching the solution will turn your skin blue and may cause irritation…The video above shows experiments that can be dangerous and it’s done by a professional, do not repeat this at home.!
