Aesthetic crystal structures? Please post here!


I think I read about bismuth crystals in another thread on here and I was surprised at how pretty they are. PICTURE HERE (don't know how to attach pictures :()

I wonder if there are any elements or compounds forming similarly aesthetic crystals? And please post pictures! :D

If you want to see aesthetic pictures of the elements, go to this site:

Click on the element! Ooooo, Aaaaaah. Genuine Fluorine too! Many crystalline metals.

Enjoy.

Thanks!! :) Some really nice crystals there.. Bismuth's still my favorite though :P

I might have a go trying to grow a bismuth crystal myself pretty soon. Anyone have any experience/tips to share?

Thanks again :)

Nice! I'll have to do some experimenting with these I think..... I've now got some bismuth powder on the way and also some CuSO4 (have to start somewhere!). That Nickel complex looks really nice too :)
