Using time-lapse photography, crystallisation becomes a process visible for the human eye. Submersed in their mother-liquor, tiny crystals emerge as seeds, developing and extending in every direction. A stone is used as base for chemical compounds to clutch and crystallise. The process at work is the same as the one happening in the earth crust when, for example, quartz is formed but at much lower temperature and pressure.
