Nature shows us a fascinating variety of crystals of different minerals. However, large, well-formed, artificially produced crystals are also the basis for many modern technologies. With us you can watch the crystals grow. Colorful iridescent crystal needles are formed in shallow bowls within minutes. Watch our little trees sprout from pure copper and move in the wind of hydrogen bubbles.
