It's ferro, you're correct.

Actually its a supersaturated water based solution, by the color i'd have to say its a super saturated mercury or iron salt. As the hotplate causes the solvent (water) to evaporate, the solution can hold less dissolved salts. As the salts fall out of solution that bind to each other according to their molecular geometries. Thus the crystal is born as you see. It is a very pure solution so it makes a perfectly aligned crystal. BTW I am a scientist.

High voltage high current fields, specializing in the partial discharge characteristics of polymer gels. Specifically, how high voltage and high current break down materials for powerline and generator applications.
