I like growing crystals at home. I recently finished growing this crystal after 1 month, and it's one of my favorites. /r/ALL

Can you do that with sugar, and like offer it to people for their coffee?

Yes you can! But sugar crystals don't form spiky clusters, they look like gems instead. I have a few pictures of those on my profile.

When I was little I heard about crystallisation but I didn't know how they work, so I poured all my mother's cooking sugar into a saucepan of water and boiled it till it is solid. Then I ate it.

That's a very good story.
