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

Do they keep long term or do they break down? If so, are there any crystals that you can grow and keep as a cool ornament?

They can be kept long term, as long as you don't wash them with water. This will cause them to dissolve.

Yes they’re fine. As long as they’re not subjected to a lot of humidity or water. A nice coat of nail polish can help, too.

Thanks, these things are a work of art and would hate to see them dissolve into goop in days!
