Crystal:What Growing crystals is not
The main purpose of Growing crystals project is to provide the most detailed source of the information (handbook) about compounds used for growing crystals, their properties, methods of synthesis, peculiarities of growth and storage, process, and their theoretical foundations taking place where.
It is also contemplated that such information should be as accurate and objective. However, you can find there inaccurate or approximate data, based on experience, if more accurate data is not available in the reference books.
The project is not...
We are not Wikipedia
We are better than Wikipedia if we speak about information about crystals, as we allow the publication of reference data from other sites, incomplete data or original researches.
At the same time, we do not publish articles about politics, history, medicine, software and other themes that are posted on the pages of Wikipedia.
We are not geologist handbook
For a detailed description of the properties, characteristics, production locations and conditions of formation of minerals and rocks there are lost of sites like Mindat.org.
We only point out some analogues of minerals available for growing in the home or at the lab with links to further information.
We are not encyclopedia about poisons and explosives
The shape and properties of crystal compounds such as potassium cyanide or picric acid are interesting scientific data. However, the extremely high toxicity or explosiveness of such compounds should be the reason to limit the publication of methods of synthesis to prevent their use to the detriment of the people and to prevent possible accidents.
The publication of such information on this website is strictly prohibited.
We are not file of image hosting service
The disk space at our server is quite limited. Therefore, before loading the materials on this website, check whether these materials are necessary and if they are optimized for display on the site. Otherwise, they will be removed.
We are not personal blog or sandbox
The platform allows users to create personal pages to accommodate them useful or just interesting information, achievements, contact information.
However, the use this opportunity for personal needs, self-promotion or advertising is unacceptable and will be suppressed.
