You won't believe how easy it is to create sparkling giants to display in your room. Our crystal growing powders and solutions are fun, easy to use, and they produce colossal crystals!
The kit is a great introduction to the science of crystal growth, a hot new field in science where spectacularly pure crystals grown in the gravity free environment of space offer clues to the development of new medicines on Earth.
My daughter was so excited to get this. She waited for the mail everyday. The instructions were so easy to follow that she did not really need help. It also told the why behind the what. Although it is too soon to actually see crystals yet, we only just started them, we are having fun checking for them.
Excellent learning opportunity

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed the unique learning opportunity that Colossal Crystals offered us. The instructions were easy to follow and we were successful in growing seed crystals that are now being used to grow several colossal crystals. We also thought that the instructions were quite informative in regards to the basic knowledge in crystal formation on a molecular level. We also liked the creative suggestions to grow crystals of any color and the fact that the Monoammonium phosphate compound could be used again and again.
Cool If You're Patient

We got these for my 7 year old son (he's been asking for them for 2 years so we finally got them!). Basically, my husband has had to "do" the experiments due to the use of chemicals/measuring, etc. but we expected that. The kit does grow crystals but it does require patience, we've been at it for a week or so and ours is about 1" long. Even though he's basically just watching, my son has really enjoyed the process, and is thrilled that we've actually made our own crystals! However, I cannot imagine ever getting them to anything close to "colossal." Overall, though, still very cool!
