“YES” echos the cave from the excited miner, “We finally found it!” The miners slowly dig out the object and pick it up, “Here it is guys, we found...A CRYSTAL!” “Woohoo,” all the miners shout,because they finally found a crystal. "In this book i am going to tell you about 4 different things that you might want to know about crystals which is, (1)What are Crystals, (2)Where crystals form, (3)Inside a crystal, and (4) The colors of crystals."



Crystals are mostly associated with clarity, transparency, and perfection. Many crystals fit these ideas, especially those cut into gemstones, but most gemstones are neither perfect nor transparent. Crystals are materials that are very solid in which the atoms are arranged in a regular pattern. “Which i think is pretty cool.” They are also known to have a crystallized, and  plane surfaces which are known as a face.


  What Are Crystals

Most mineral crystals form in molten rocks. They are usually made close to each other when magma cools, and get produced in a non regular shape. Some crystals have a square shape, and others have triangle shapes. Perfect crystals show straight edges, such as the square of salt. However, most crystals don’t have perfect shapes.


This is because crystals grow in confined spaces in the ground and do not have good space to form evenly in all directions. Some crystals appear to have straight edges in some parts but - rounded or jagged in other areas.

Crystals Are Everywhere

The best way to think about what crystals are like and why they have the properties they do, is to imagine them from the inside. Or  to see them from the inside as you can in this illustration.The distribution of red and blue balls show’s the structure of  table salt. The red and blue balls react to chloride respectively, and they are formed into a square structure in different rows next to each other.


If you watch  the balls from any angle you will notice that there are red and blue balls in every part of the crystal, and about in the same proportion whatever the volume you are looking at. The balls are very distributed.


   Inside a crystal 

The realization that color has influence over the human mind is as old as

recorded history. What is hard is to separate out the fact from the fiction. Colors have many meanings to people mostly based on their culture and religion. But the natural crystals and minerals have no culture and no religion. They are a part of the Earth.


Their color influence rays stay the same. We see “red” when mad, and red inspires us to action. We are “blue” when sad. Yellow warms us. Green slows us down both mentally and physically. The fundamental meanings of colors have been present in the wisdom of all cultures, but somewhat confusing and occasionally misinterpreted. But with the research of today’s practitioners of biology, biochemistry, and physics, we can sort truth from fiction.


Crystals and There Colos

“Now that you finished the text - i wanted to know some questions.” (obviously you don't have to right down the question, but at least think them in your head.) (1) “Do you want to know more about crystals?” (2) “Did you enjoy reading the text?” (3) “Why did you like the text, or if you did not like it what do you think i could improve on?” “So those are my three questions, hopefulcly you enjoyed learning about crystals!”
