DIY Geode Crystals

Geode crystals can be made over a course of a few days inside an empty egg shell.

  1. Boil a saucepan of water and add salt to that water
  2. When the salt has dissolved, add food colouring
  3. Put the empty egg shell into the solution and leave over a course of 3 days
  4. Crystals will start to form on the inside of the shell
  5. If the required amount of crystals is not yet formed, leave in for longer.
