Why?

Its bundled tabular form appear like rose flower petals, or a geometrical shape. Both its appearance, and the ability to self assemble, and self grow its crystals reminds me much of an actual plant that provides for itself to develop. It's also considered to be rare due to being one of the few carbobarates mankind knows about.The ranges in its appearance can also be from a milky white to colorless slightly see through appearance, which in a way made me think of white roses. I also remember in grade school working with these during a science lesson, and remembered the sparky particles all over them which I felt were very pretty. —Dagmar Eileen Bonet
