Ooze Labs Colorful Crystal Lab
Grow in your wonder and understanding of crystals with this Colorful Crystal Lab! Experiment with growing crystals in different shapes and textures using various methods, such as evaporation or cooling; and on a variety of materials, such as string, paper cone, petri dish, or rock. Mix different colors of crystal solution in the spinning centrifuge, and show off your crystal creations in the display dome. This lab station is equipped with test tubes, petri dish, centrifuge, display dome, tools, supplies, and a 24-page manual. Some experiments require additional supplies that can easily be found in most households. Use this lab on its own or with other Ooze Labs kits (item #038232, #044325, #044329) to make a super lab station and feel like a real chemist! ~Rachel E.
Explore the natural beauty and wonder of crystals by growing them yourself in many different shapes and colors. Set up your lab base station — the headquarters for all your crystal growing experiments, complete with beakers, test tubes, petri dish, tweezers, centrifuge, display dome, and more. Then conduct more than ten experiments in crystal formation, using safe, non-toxic crystal salts.
Make a crystal volcano by growing fast-forming crystals on a paper cone. Watch long spindly crystals form on a rock as if from nowhere. Grow crystals in many different ways, such as in a petri dish by evaporation, on a string dangling in solution, and by cooling a supersaturated solution. Experiment with three different chemicals, each resulting in different crystal shapes: monopotassium phosphate, ammonium dihydrogen phosphate, and potassium aluminium sulfate. Mix your own colors for your crystal growing solutions in the spinning centrifuge, so you can achieve a variety of different colors: red, pink, blue, purple, and clear. Learn about how crystals form in your experimental solutions and also in nature.
After you have completed the experiments with the materials in the kit, you can continue using the lab station and equipment for your own crystal-growing and chemistry experiments, using common materials from around your home like table salt and alum salt.
Combine the base station with the base stations from the other Ooze Labs kits (Chemistry Station, Soap & Bath Bomb Lab, and Alien Slime Lab) to make one awesome laboratory setup!
