I grow these crystals at home using a super-saturated solution with alum. Each crystal is sprayed with polyurethane for protection, then glued into a display case. If you keep the case closed and out of direct sunlight (and away from water!), you'll have a beautiful shiny crystal for years to come. They make excellent and unusual gifts, and were recently awarded First Place at the Arizona State Fair (2011).

Some crystals are made with alum and Epsom salts, which give a different texture.

This is the LARGE size. I have small, medium and large crystals available. Each is unique.

Large: 2 9/16" x 2 9/16" x 2 9/16" - $8 each
Medium: 2" x 2" x 1 3/8" - $4 each
Small: 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" - $2 each

Note: if the crystal or felt backing start to loosen, merely use a few dabs of Elmer's glue and let the case sit open overnight. It will be as good as new. Be sure to keep the case closed the rest of the time because the crystals are fragile and dust and air will dull them.

Shipping is a little high because they are fragile and must be very carefully over-packed! If your crystal arrives damaged, please return it to me and I will either refund or send another crystal to replace it.

Alum is commonly believed to bring protection and luck.
