Crystals are minerals that form a crystalline structure with its atoms and ions arranged in geometrically precise patterns. Quartz, with its characteristic clear points, is the most common crystal. Quartz caught the attention of many people in the United States in the mid-1980s during the surge of the New Age movement, spirituality, mysticism, metaphysics and other related activities. Note that crystals were already popularly used by other cultures long before they were commercialized by the American shops and establishments that rode the new wave.
