   The word crystal is derived from a Greek word meaning "clear ice." Its chemical name is silicon dioxide (SiO2). A near perfect quartz crystal will form only if its chemical environment stays constant and it is able to grow freely and unobstructed. The geometry of the hexagonal structure of a quartz crystal is directly related to its internal atomic arrangement.
   Quartz crystals are strongly piezoelectric, becoming polarized with a negative charge on one end and a positive charge on the other when subjected to pressure. They will vibrate if an alternating electric current is applied to them. Thus they are very important an industry for making gauges, oscillators, resonators and watches. This quartz crystal has been tumbled and polished to give it a smooth, shiny surface.
