    SWIM sent 'em, so I figured maybe someone would enjoy some eye candy.

    For extraction from MHRB, SWIM always follows the marsofold tek. It doesn't get any better than that. SWIM never does ammonia washes though, just recrystallization. His exact clean-up procedure will be listed in the next post.

    Rhomboid-like crystalline structure

    Needle-like crystalline structure

    How does SWIM do it? He follows the marsofold tek down until he gets his 10% of the total solvent evaporated, than allows for a freeze precipitation, sometimes as long as a week in the freezer undisturbed.

    The crystals are filtered out and dried. All dry crystals are placed into a test tube, and fresh warm naptha is added dropwise until all the crystals dissolve.

    Usually at this point SWIM notices some sort of yellowish goo at the bottom of the test tube that is not able to dissolve. This is seperated from the naptha, and the naptha is allowed to freezer precipitate for another week.

    That's how I was able to produce clean, rhomboid structured crystals.

    The glass shard type...were allowed to precipitate out in a dresser drawer, undisturbed, at room temperature. SWIM put a small amount of naptha in a centrifuge tube, and placed it in a drawer, and forgot about it.

    A week later it was checked, and crystals had formed the length of the tube.

    And that's that. Hope all is enjoyed, and that someone can benefit from SWIM's experiences.

    Thanks a lot! The second picture is pretty dirty, I couldn't find something to put the crystals on, so used the bottom of a CD...big mistake!

    Goddamn, I can almost not believe that these crystals will have a plastic-tase when smoked. But probably they will anyway :D. Damn nice crystals, you should be proud of yourself :).

    Because sometimes there is beauty in what is obviously a job well done. I do not smoke, yet if she were to lay her eyes on what was obviously a full, bushy plant heavy with buds, she would still appreciate the fact that it was a labor of love and praise accordingly.

    Beard, those are some badass crystals, my friend. Does SWIM notice any difference in the smoking experience of large crystals vs. the more powdery stuff that comes out of the initial freeze precip?

    I'm surprised that the room-temp precipitation worked so well. About how big were those shards? Would this not leave a small amount of alkaloid in the naptha if you didn't freeze it out? (Could be recycled, of course)

    Well, both procedures were obviously successful. Does SWIM have any preference between the two, either in terms of process or consumability of the product?


    aminorex: As Badness already mentioned, crystals like this are a sign of workmanship, which is admirable in any pursuit. Beyond this, large crystals are an indicator of purity. As the week goes by the crystal lattice regenerates many time, becoming larger and forcing out impurities in the process. A gram of material in a single crystal has a more homogeneous internal structure and less surface area than a gram of powder.

    Nice paper, btw, I didn't have that one. I learned that DMT forms hexagonal crystals :smoking:

    Very very nice work. It is truly amazing that we (humans) can separate one thing from another like these crystals from a plant. I suppose it was meant to be this way or else we could never have accomplished it. So, when the entities welcome you it truly is a welcome to you as a wise entity yourself as to having found the key to their world is not a simple thing.

    Congratulations again on some pretty crystals, now crush them and smoke on! :D

    Jimmah!
