Watch How These Stunning Crystals Take Shape

This video from Emanuele Fornasier, published to Vimeo, details the exquisite formation of crystals created through chemical compounds.

Fornasier ran an electric current through the chemical solutions, and he recorded the reactions for this project. The clips were sped up, as some of the reactions can take several hours to fully shape.

The process occurs through electrocrystallization, or when electric currents trigger a metal deposition reaction.
