Prince Rupert’s drop mysterious nature has fascinated many over the centuries. The drop is created by dropping molten glass into cold water. This process cools and solidifies the glass into a teardrop-shaped droplet with a long tail. The droplet’s head is incredibly strong, while the tail end is very fragile. Breaking just one bit of the tail will shatter the rest of the droplet into pieces. Watch the video by Smarter Everyday to see the awesomeness of the shattering process.
