what is CRYSTALS


The word crystals come from the Greek word krystallos, meaning “frozen light”. Means when super-heated gases come in contact with mineral are when cooled crystals are formed. They are solid that are formed by a regular repeated pattern of molecules connecting together. In some solids, the arrangements of the building blocks can be random or very different throughout the material. In crystals, however, a collection of atoms called the unit cell is repeated in exactly the same arrangements over and over throughout the entire material.
Crystal is a three dimensional structure of stone which is believed to exhibit positive energy that transform environment by deriving energy from cosmos. Crystals have immense effect on individual both mentally and physically as well as on surroundings in creating a holistic environment. These are been used over the centuries for many purposes- from healing to protection to decoration.
Crystals are substances that are formed in tight, packed arrangements of molecules in an ordered pattern. How a crystal forms depends on the chemistry of the fluid that makes up a crystal and the external conditions. For example, certain crystals, like diamonds, require high amounts of pressure and temperature to form. Others, like snowflakes, require it to be below a certain temperature. Examples of other types of crystals are glass, most metals, and salt. 
To add just a bit of history of crystals exploration. Knowledge of crystals has been used in ancient Atlantis, in South America, Egypt, Tibet, and many other cultures around the globe. Early works on astrology, written in Sanskrit and dating back to 400 B.C, make elaborate observations on the origin and power of crystals.
Today, with the advancement of technology, ruby crystals, natural and man- made, are used in laser for microscopic surgery. Quartz crystals are used in ultrasound devices, watches, as well as memory chips in computers etc.
