Information About Rock Crystal

Rock crystal is one of the rarer forms of quartz. It is often completely transparent and often just known as crystal.

The crystals are commonly found in rock cavities where it forms quartz veins. When iron impurities are added the rock crystals may become a yellow-orange (citrine) or mauve-purple (amethyst) in color. Making it more desirable for use in jewelry.

The word crystal is from the Greek word krystallos which means ice. When Greeks discovered some rock crystals centuries ago they believed the crystals to have been made by ice.
