What the Expert Says:

I'm assuming you are using bluing, etc. poured over charcoal and waiting for the crystals to form? Since you asked some time ago, you have probably already discovered the answer, which is great. But it isn't the charcoal that turns into crystals. The interaction of the liquids and the charcoal creates a slow chemical reaction that produces the pretty crystals.
