This spice was seperated from its yellow counterparts using some slick heating then cooling techniques while in/out of solution in n-heptane (bestine). once spice was of acceptable purity it was completly dissolved in n-heptane once more, once fully dissolved, the vessel was removed from heat bath, sealed, and placed inside a cooler filled with very hot water, cooler was sealed and placed under a blanket, 72 hours or so later, the cooler had reached room temp inside. the blanket was removed and the cooler was carfully placed inside a cold ass fridge, 12 hours later, the cooler had reached fridge temp inside. during the cooling phase, all temp changes were very gradual and the cooler was handled very tenderly to not disturb any crystal growth. very dense crystal growth was knocked off the walls by shaking and some blade action, then shaken and swifty dumped through a filter. rinse the jar a few times and re-dump. heres pic of the filters contents, keep in mind its a brown filter. enjoy...
all credit goes to n-heptane.

it was actually not too clean to start with. it was extracted hot with naptha, then solvent was shaken with hot water to remove the little droplets of basified solution that snuck through, then activated charcoal was added about 1/5g carbon per g expected spice. then freeze precipped (very concentrated) to yield pretty yellow spice, a crystalization with naptha was attempted on this spice, it made it cleaner but the crystals grew yellow. heptane changed everything, its super selective on what it dossolves at what temp. this is foafs first experience with heptane, its cake to get crystals like this with heptane. just experiement with heating and cooling and pay close attention to what the yellow does, you will notice a few occasions where the yellow all falls out but the spice stays, this is your moment to strike. it also helps to dissolve as much dmt as possible while getting NO yellow, then take this solution away from the yellow on the bottom and put it into another jar and freeze precip it, let the crystals stick in it and dump the heptane back into the first jar, do that again and again until you have a jar with nothing but yellow and a jar with nothing but white.

thanks, i want to reitterate how easy n-heptane made things. if you can yield smokable spice, you could get crystals like this.:loveeyes:

Now if I can just find some Heptane!
I can't find it anywhere. I've heard that art supply stores carry it as a rubber cement solvent ( Bestine* ), but the ones I've called where completely clueless about it.

Those are some great Xtals! I plan to be trying another extraction here soon. The first one didn't go that badly but there is definitely room for improvement as it didn't turn out anywhere near as good as your's did A.L.
Great Job BTW.

Andy, if possible, would you mind relaying weight of dirty DMT, solvent volumes, temperatures experiment was performed at, and final weight of cleaned DMT. Thank you kindly sir, those crystals are something to marvel at.

its kind of hard to give you that data, since it was foafs first first try at crystals it was far from a straight shot from yellow to glass. lots of back fourth and hot and cold. i can tell you the heat bath never got much above 160f, and at its lowest (effective heat) was like 120f. foaf also made use of the frigde and freezer. foaf started with about 19g pretty yellow spice (hard to explain how yellow for obvious reasons but it was crystally and not too greasy/sticky but its was very yellow to the eye), the picture shows 10g of finished crystal but there is much more to be had, its still in with the yellow tho, foaf was aiming for absolute purity, not so much max yield. whenever it was a question of getting all of the dmt or getting zero yellow, foaf went with zero yellow. foaf went with around 500ml of heptane and has hardly lost any, even with all the back and fourth and what not. foaf predicts/hopes to finish with 16g glassy shards and a few grams greasy goop to recycle into next batch.
