(For Steph. Who likes things that sparkle.) Step 1: Gather materials. You will need: a glass of warm water. A pencil, string, small garden stone, and table salt. Step 2: Tie the pencil to the string. Lay the pencil rim to rim across the glass. Then, tie the stone to the loose end of the string. Make sure the stone is submerged in the liquid. Step 3: Add the table salt. You should add about three shakes of salt. If the water is not filmy, then add more. Stir the water. Step 4: Leave the glass in a sunny place like a windowsill. Allow about 2 weeks for this to work. Step 5: It's been 2 weeks! If you have a decent sized jewel, and you want to add some color to your clear crystal, add some food coloring of your color choice. ENJOY!!
