I have some fake powdery snow, fine crystal, etc. However, I just saw some ornements with "fake snow" that has pieces of "crystals" one them. They are as big as if they were rock salt consistancy (close to broken glass just not sharp) - but not rock salt it will deteriate. Anybody ever seen any of this in a jar or have any suggestions.

Are you talking about "Diamond Dust" - that is very fine. Can you share a pic of this "rock salt consistency" stuff?

No its "bigger" than diamond dust - its not a dust consistancy - rock salt is what you sprinkle on snow and ice to get it to melt.

Tammy, I got the stuff to make the iced branches with last year at Jo-ann's in the floral department, if that helps any.

I bought some at Michaels. I glued some around one of those big margarita glasses and made a fountain.
