RE: Shrinking violet ferric AS crystals
|From:||"Monson, Frederick C." |
Jeffrey! Another one of those juicy words whose meaning is lost in the
emotion of using it. The last time I saw efflorescence, it was creeping on
the wall of a basement lab, or was it in a subway station. For a
wonderful, albeit pathotic, discussion of what is called "efflorescence", I
recommend the following:
might be right about the 'dehydration', but I ALWAYS screw my caps on tight,
especially when it's cold outside!
Ferr(ic) Three alum with the violet
Changes to whitish obscura.
by a mishap'd evolution that's past,
certain there's no simple cure_a.
when, my friends, the whitish shows up,
shed salty tears in the gears.
Indeed, the solution's just dripped in
you order fresh crystals, my dears!
