On A Wednesday afternoon at 1:21pm I began boiling water to begin my. On the following day I observed that tiny crystals began to form within the plastic cup along the string with the paper clip in the center of the cup. Throughout the week I made daily observations and noticed that the tiny crystals began to grow into larger crystals. The crystals got bigger and bubblier, they also appeared to be rough, hard, lusterless and pointy. Some looked like cubes and others more like pyramids, octagons and hexagon shaped cubes. The crystals are cloudy or hazy meaning they were not transparent. My crystals took about two weeks to grow. I drained approximately two-four ounces of liquid out of my cup.
