Product Details

Take your salt crystal lessons from 2-D to 3-D with this sodium chloride ion model set! Students will be able to discover the cubic nature of salt crystals, efficient lattice packing, high melting temperature and cleavage planes all with this 3 × 3 × 3 model. Each ion model contains six embedded magnets that allows 6:6 coordination and tight packing. Explore how the positive sodium and negative chloride ions form electrostatic bonds to create a strong crystal structure. Contains 27 ions, 13 of one type of ion and 14 of the other.
