Congelation is crystallization, and all crystallization is electric, or magneto-electric.
Many singular effects of congelation may be observed, which change their forms in various parts.
No doubt they had tried to swim across at the moment of congelation, and had been unable to disengage themselves.
The saline matter which sea-water holds in solution, prevents its congelation, except where the most intense cold prevails.
Therefore, this salt must have been in a fluid state of fusion, immediately before its congelation and crystallization.
It forms near, and above, the point of congelation, and is often composed of crystals of ice or snow.
When the congelation is partial, those organs which have been completely frozen become gangrenous and are destroyed.
Mr. Stahl was the first, I believe, who thus made use of congelation, for procuring a very strong Acid of Vinegar.
Vinegar suffers no decomposition by the congelation of its phlegm, and the consequent concentration of its Acid.
There are therefore two ways of concentrating Vinegar, and separating its most acid part, namely distillation and congelation.
