What Do You Know About Crystal? Crystal Quiz!

Crystals are solids which their microscopic components are highly arranged in an orderly manner making it be a crystal lattice extending along with all directions. Crystals derived their name from a Greek word meaning ice and rock crystal. There are a lot of substances which are crystals, but most inorganic solids are polycrystals.
