Beautiful Macro Time Lapse of Crystals Forming

Crystallization2” features beautiful macro time lapse footage by Yan Liang from Beauty of Science of various types of crystals as they form. Liang released a similar video in 2014 of different compounds crystallizing.

The subjects of this project were droplets of saturated aqueous solutions containing various inorganic salts (e.g. table salt, sodium sulfate etc.). The evaporation of water initiated the crystallization processes inside the droplets, which were captured by time-lapse photography. Hope you enjoy these beautiful crystallization processes! A single droplet contains the wonders of nature.
