Rock Crystal

Stones - Information from Wikipedia

Rock Crystal:-

Rock Crystal Pure quartz, traditionally called rock crystal (sometimes called clear quartz), is colourless, transparent, clear or translucent, and has often been used for hard stone carvings, such as the Lothair Crystal. Common coloured varieties include citrine, rose quartz, amethyst, smoky quartz, milky quartz, and others. Quartz goes by an array of different names. Quartz is the most common material identified as the mystical  substance maban in Australian Aboriginal mythology. It is found regularly in passage tomb cemeteries in Europe in a burial context, such as Newgrange or Carrowmore in Ireland. The Irish word for quartz is grian cloch, which means 'stone of the sun'. Quartz was also used in Prehistoric Ireland, as well as many other countries, for stone tools; both vein quartz and rock crystal were knapped as part of the lithic technology of the prehistoric peoples.
