Crystal Birth: A Beautiful Timelapse of Electrocrystallization

Emanuele Fornasier is an Italian chemistry student who has spent the past few months documenting the fascinating/hypnotic formation of crystals.

Crystal Birth is the culmination of his work. A timelapse of some 18 examples of electrocrystallization, which is a process where an electric current is run through a chemical solution that causes metal deposits to form over a period of several hours or days.
