Filming Crystals

  1. Feb 21, 2007 #1
    Not sure if this is right place to be asking-here goes:
    Am a video art student and am interested
    in capturing crystals in liquid-

    Have noticed crystal formation in some semi freezing oil which visually is pretty interesting!

    Really not knowledgable in the field of chemistry / physics, think i read something that said: the longer the freezing process of a substance the larger the crystals.

    Anybody out there whose got any ideas on creating interesting crystal formations to photograph?
