For a scientific explanation as to how they form I would suggest that water condensate from the air blankets the cold , calm , salty water and begins to converge, forming 3D crystals, where it may not be possible with salt water on it's own. Just a hunch, but it might be much more complex than that. Very cool and thanks for the post.

I see these all the time.

They magically appear in my Freezer. I'm sure the two are directly related.

Under what conditions do these form and is this a special event or does it happen every year?

Not unless your learning Lifeforce/Od/soft particle physics/Orgone.

But everyone here is entitled to their opinion or what they've been taught.

On both our sides, we are to tread carefully on what we speak.

I don't know about you, Marbles, but I too denied the fact that there is no way possible for upper Arctic Circle region to be warm, until I read these passages.

May not be much but there are more things that are being kept from us that normal, such as, Earth is hollow.

And each one is it's own little microcosm, drifting aimlessly.

Oh, lovely pics! Looks like a beautiful origami by Mother Nature. Our planet is so full of beauty.

Those photos were absolutely amazing. I'd like to see the frost flowers under a scope.

That's gorgeous. I've never even heard of these before. I'm going to do a little research and find out if these formations are rare.

This is the most amazing thing, how do these things come about? and why do they appear? on the surface of water? there is a similar thing in Alaska where you can see very small flowers of different colors growing on some rocks. Like, how do they get the proper nutrition? and now this. May be these two things have similar explanation?
