What are Crystals?
A Crystal is a Mineral in a Stable Form. All Crystals have a recognizable structure made up of repeated arrangements of atoms known as a Crystal Lattice. Crystals are only formed from gas or liquid solution at the correct temperature and pressure within the womb of Mother Earth. Once Crystallized, a Mineral can remain unchanged for millions of years.
The word crystal comes from the ancient Greek word KRUSTALLOS – Meaning Frozen ice. The Ancients believed that clear quartz crystal was water frozen in time.
The scientific meaning of crystals is a solid material whose structure of atoms and molecules are arranged in an orderly repeating pattern extending in all three dimensions.
Scientist have also discovered that crystals have been around for more than 4 billion years.
