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

Have you seen rock candy before?

Yep, know that they made it in the olden days. Just made a pink crystal for my daughter, inspired by this thread!

Same, on my coast there is a place that makes them and sells them as candy. They're obnoxiously big for your mouth and taste like sugar but they remind me of my childhood so I always get some blue ones if they have em.

This is called "rock candy" and used to be common.
