    Yeah, with the ferrous iron in it I thought you were making fireworks

    Oh does that do something? It's not ferrous anymore I think it's ferric now (FE^+3) Lol. I didn't let it bake dry, just long enough to reduce the liquid by half.

    I'm gonna blow myself up lmao

    It smells like pumpkins!

    I should add half a bottle of superthrive for an extra kick and let it recrystalize

    They put powdered iron compound in fireworks, that's what makes the nice golden sparkle. Iron burns! Get some really fine steel wool from the paint store, tear off a piece and take a match to it

    O.O

    I hate chemistry. >_<

    So what kind of crystals grow from these kits? Surely not the ones that are shown on the covers of the boxes? It's not those little fragile ones is it? Cuz those suck.. you touch em and POOF! All gone. D:

    No, When I was a kid I got crystals just like on the box. They are fragile if you are rough with them but they won't break if you touch them (Except for the super-tiny needle ones)

    Chemistry is fun Once you have a good understanding of chemistry you see the world around you differently. When I discovered if you could make all the atoms and subatomic particles that make up the earth touch, they would fit in a teaspoon, it blew my mind and freaked me out. When I learned everything is mostly empty space, blew my mind even more.

    Well I hate Chemistry because my current chemistry teacher is a total explitive. She's psychotic and makes me soooo frustrated. I think she' might be related to my Algebra teacher. :P

    So like.. these crystals... if I throw em at say.. a wall...they'd break? So they're kinda like glass? Not real dense.

    Aww... well what good's a crystal if you can't throw it at a wall? Just kidding. THe reason I asked is because my room is crazy and things get knocked over occasionally.. cats and...people and stuff. :/
