Growing Crystals

 Ds has been wanting to do some crystal growing for ages. He is wanting to use this experience to complete his scientist badge before he goes up to scouts(no pressure!)
 after carefully reading the instructions
 He opened the packet of ingredients!

 This is what we got.
 He had to use boiling water with the sachet.
Here is the result. Now we wait for  something to happen.
Note to all homeschooling crystal growers:Please share  links to pictures of your crystal growing experiences in  your homeschooling. We are keen to try different crystals. One really cool looking crystals requires allum. Where can I get this, any ideas?
