Crystal Ideations

When I was researching for my crystal environmental element I was looking for something specific. The crystal in my world is plague like and creeps along consuming things in its path. I first looked up crystals and how they grow. This was not enough for what I needed. I started to look at videos of mold and fungus and how they spread. This was a push in the right direction and I got really inspired.  I also ask my mentors what direction they might take the ideas. They give me ideas and usually their input makes the research go into a more creative direction. From a mentor I was given the idea of looking at cancer cells and how the cancer cells spread and take over living cells
