Alum Crystals Time Lapse

Grow these crystals by dissolving alum in half a cup of boiling water. You’ll need about 2-1/2 tablespoons of alum. Allow the solution to sit undisturbed. Within a couple of hours, you’ll have this!

These are Epsom salt crystals I grew on an old kitchen sponge.

Playing with Squidoo

This weekend I played with Squidoo, which seems to be a mix between user-generated content and helping readers find relevant content elsewhere on the Web. I made a couple of pages (called ‘lenses’) about topics I know and love… chemical volcanos and crystals. I added a quickie bio page, too. It was interesting to work with a different set of templates. The lenses got picked up by Google very quickly, even though I didn’t promote them. Pretty cool. Lots of fun.
