Crystal growing Photography

The Amazing World of Crystals

Just to keep things going we decided to make a little gallery of artificially grown crystals. Some of them are linked to their respective articles, where their synthesis is explained usually with some interesting information regarding their properties, structure et cetora. We’d like to eventually cover all of them with articles they definitely deserve.  If you’re especially interested in some of them, write us the comments and we will try to make article about it as soon as possible :).
