Crystal growth II

A teaching aid showing the gradual growth of a crystal under a microscope.

This early black and white silent film, possibly created as a teaching aid, shows the growth of a crystal under a microscope. It uses time-lapse imaging techniques to allow the viewer to see a spiral growth slowly appear on the surface of a crystal.

This is possibly an excerpt from a longer teaching film on the subject of crystal growth.
