How Do Crystals Form Grow?

Crystals found in rocks typically range in size from a fraction of a millimetre to several centimetres across although exceptionally large crystals are occasionally found As of 1999 the world's largest known naturally occurring crystal is a crystal of beryl from Malakialina Madagascar 18 m (59 ft) long and 3 5 m (11 ft) in diameter and
