Did you know that ice crystals form at 60-degree angles? YouTube user Veritasium busts the enigma behind these curious formations in his latest video.

And if you want to create these icy growths yourself, there are three key details to follow: use a freezer temperature of between 18 and 23 degrees Fahrenheit (-5 and -8 degrees Celsius), use distilled water and not tap water, and use a freezer with a fan. Then, impress your friends with spiky ice cubes at your next dinner party!

Check out the video from Veritasium below.
