Crystal

Any solid material formed of repeated molecules, arranged in a regular, ordered way, forming a lattice and giving the crystal a geometric shape, the term encompasses a range of materials, from quartz through to precious gemstones. Since ancient times crystals have been used to adorn, as well as being prized for health-giving, healing and even magical powers.
