  • According to chemistry and mineralogy, a crystal usually is a solid substance which is made up of constituent atoms, molecules and ions that are stuck together in a recurring pattern expanding in all three spatial dimensions.

    The term crystal is derived from the ancient Greek term "Krystallos" which meant clear ice. The method of structuring a crystalline substance is known as crystallization. Crystalline structures take place in types of materials and also with all kinds of chemical bonds. Nearly all metals are present in a polycrystalline condition. Generally all crystalline materials have a mixture of crystallographic effects.

    Inorganic substances, if liberated to take that material state in which it is most constant, always tend to crystallize. Certain crystalline substances tend to show unique electrical properties like ferroelectric effect or the piezoelectric effect. The methodical study of crystals is known as Crystallography.

Crystals are made when water that is rich in minerals gets into the cavities or holes in rocks to form crystals over time. Crystals can take hundreds of years to form which is one of the reasons why crystals are so valuable. - AnneB. Age 10

Crystals are made in the following ways;
when the vapour of a subliming substance cools
when a hot substance solidifies on cooling
when magma solidifies

Crystals are made when water which solid materials dissolved in it evaporates. Only the water evaporates meaning the solution gets more and more concentrated. Eventually it gets concentrated to force production of crystals. Gimantha T. Age:12 :)

Yeah thanks a lot I have a science project on this thing too...kinda stressed...I learned that crystals are used for transfer signals like radios!
Yes, there is a few ways crystals form like what samantha said that one is the evaporation method, there's other ways which for me is samantha complicated!
