The tiny green things that looked similar to crystals were made from one thousand, long, slimy crocodile tongues boiled in the skull of a dead witch for twenty days and twenty nights with lizard eyeballs. Then the fingers of a young monkey were added to the mix, along with pig gizzards, a parrot's beak, porcupine juice, and three spoonfuls of sugar. Once mixed, the potion was left to stew for a week, after which, it was ready to use.
