Just a thought on the smell: micronized sulphur contaminate?

I also have quite a few liters of sauce with millions of tiny diamonds, was wanting to wash them in pentane. Would they rhem grow into larger diamonds in room yemp pentane and would it also be possible to get the terps back out of the pentane i use to wash or should i just recover my pentane and add the leftovers into a distilate run?

redissolve with warm pentane. let cool for crystals.
terps can be harvested from the liquid fraction.

Is it that easy? I have pentane lying around actually?

I’ve always heard it’s super hard to purge and the crystals will trap it in bad bc so big

Its not that pentane is hard to purge, it just have vwry low odor threshold levels. To effectively remove that pentane smell add alcohol once youve reached the purity you want. Methanol or ethanol are a good choice because you cant smell them in the quad digit ppm range but pentane and hexanes can be smelled in the single digit ppm range. Alcohols also boil much higher than pentane.

I think its hard to totally remove the smell of pentane, hexane, or heptane without doing a final recrystallization step with a more odorless solvent.
