If so, please elaborate. How long, what solvent, what type of filter, etc?

As opposed to freeze precipitation?

Use as selective a solvent as you can - think heptane as opposed to toluene, recrystalize first, and evap as slowly as patience will allow. The best I’ve seen was done on an unheated basement floor in a mason jar with a nail hole punched in the lid. It took months.
The slower the crystals form, the larger they will be.

Well you’ve inspired me.
I’m taking half a gram that was freeze precipitated from an A/B, dissolving it in a shot glass of heptane, and forgetting about it for awhile.
I’m not recrystalizing it first because I want to see what kind of strata forms. I’m not covering it either so it will take days rather than months to evaporate.
Maybe I’ll take the results of that to try growing some really big crystals.

Usually if you fast evap (using a fan), and your starting material is clean you'll get some cool looking mono crystals that look like shards of glass, slow evap will grow larger spikey xtals that look cool too.

I was talking with mikey and he mentioned that it should be somewhere with no vibrations and it should be covered.

I grew these just by doing a slow cool of the saturated solvent, in this case a little excess solvent works better to grow larger xtals.

Those are some of the most awesome crystal formations I could have imagined Mushinist !

Cats, I would really like you to be the one that names that nomination photo..............

I think you will have a better name than if I just tag it with something before we set up a voting poll.

I cant wait to see what kind of xtals CatsAndBats comes up with!

And thank you Skywatcher, after I dried those I pulverized it to a powder again and made dmt fumarate for long term storage purposes.

You might be disappointed. Someone asked me for some and since I don't feel like doing a new pull, coupled with no freezer space, I'm just going to grab all the solvent from my other pulls and slow evap that.

 

Plus I use acacia, so I might end up with gooey (still really mindblowing) oil.

Ayight, back on subject. Y'all think that there's a specific jar/vessel that would work best? I found one of those real short wide mouth jars, I'm prolly gonna do it in that. Thoughts?

 

One of these:

I might just do it and then make any adjustments tomorrow based on y'all's feedback.

It’s easiest to recover crystals from a tall narrow vessel and they grow nicer without being able to spread out horizontally.
Less surface area on top means slower evaporation too.

Thank you. I have the perfect (purrfect?) vessel!

Digging this thread. I haven’t got crystals to be proud of yet. Cause if the fats in the ACRB right? I just did a defat for the first time though. I may have to start a fresh run for science.

I have to add I do realize it isn’t all about the crystalporn and the jungle shit I had knocked my socks off. Still want it to work the way it’s supposed to.
