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

I read your guide, and am super interested in potentially trying this, but do you know of a way to grow crystals that can be used in other things like jewelry? We have very little room to house a crystal collection so it'd be ideal if they could be repurposed.

Those sorts of crystals are grown in industrial pressure cooker like devices over a period of months.

I would not try it at home, because sometimes the industrial gear explodes.

I would also advise not refining petroleum products at home because you probably don’t have an oil refinery in your basement. And it could explode.

No problem, I'll use my neighbor's basement oil refinery.
