Grow Your Own Crystals With Alums And Eggshells

First you prepare your eggshells: Coat them with a water-insoluble. Glue and sprinkle them with alum salt. Let everything dry for about 1 hour. This will create the basis for your crystal growing afterwards.

Put the hot water in a bowl and stir in enough alum until no more powder dissolves in the water. This means that you have a saturated solution and the crystals can then deposit themselves super well on the eggshells. When in doubt, you’d better add a little more alums to the water than too little! If you use too little, fewer or no crystals will form. Since we mixed by feeling, the quantities are not 100% accurate.

If you like, you can add food coloring to the solution. We made the experience here that you have to use a lot of color so that the eggshells are also nice and colorful afterwards. Put the prepared eggshells in the solution and let everything stand overnight. The next day wonderful crystals are formed! Pat your crystals dry and paint the edge with some gold paint.
