Crystal Cave

videoToday Robert brought some of his crystal collection to school. At lunchtime, we used the digital microscope to examine some of the crystals more closely. This one was our favourite. It looks like a crystal cave.

Wow, crystals look quite different under the microscope. This is a very cool picture.

What crystal was that one Robert? Have you tried puting a drop of warm salt water under the microscope and watch the crystals of salt form as the water evaporates away? Different substances give you different shapes.

To Robert's Grandad Le Bas:
We are not sure what crystal it was. We will try the warm salt water later in the week. Thank you for commenting.
