Crystal Birth: A Beautiful Timelapse of Metallic Crystals Forming in Chemical Solutions

November 11, 2016

Christopher Jobson

Italian chemistry student Emanuele Fornasier also has a knack for photography and spent the last few months documenting the formation of crystals. The result is Crystal Birth, a timelapse of some 18 examples of electrocrystallization, where an electric current is run through a chemical solution, causing metal deposits to form over a period of several hours or days. You can see more of his chemistry and timelapse work on his website.
