Sola Cube - Rock Crystal 冰の化石 5cm
The ice fossil formed by hot water
In ancient Greek, crystal is known as fossil of ice. The word crystal itself meaning ice in Greek, and the root of the word comes from the Greek word Krystalos. However, crystals are not ice, but formed naturally inside hot spring. When the hot spring’s temperature and pressure becomes low, the silicic acid inside would slowly crystalize itself. The artificial crystal being used inside clocks has the same material as rock crystal.
