In this simple chemistry demonstration or crystal project you'll grow a silver crystal tree. This is a variation of the classic method of growing silver crystals on a copper wire or bead of mercury.
Silver Crystal Tree Materials
- sheet of copper that has been cut into a tree shape or a tree made from copper wire
- 0.1 M silver nitrate solution
Grow a Silver Crystal Tree
How It Works
2 Ag+ + Cu → Cu2+ + 2 Ag
When you are finished growing the silver crystals, you can remove the tree from the solution and use it as a decoration.
