Crystals are fascinating in that they are one of the few places in nature where atomic/quantum scale patterns are perceivable at our scale. (Magnets are another.) The arrangement of atoms in a crystal is "pure" at all scales and thus its natural shape is true all the way down to individual clusters of atoms. They even cleave into perfect copies of themselves. Holding a crystal, one can truly feel like one is perceiving the innate order of the universe.This appeal has touched many cultures and myths, especially those dealing with magic. Ranging from New Age practitioners to the Sketis/Mystics of the film "Dark Crystal", the link between crystals and the fundamental magical forces of nature has been strong.As the article mentioned at the end, one can choose Jewelcrafting as an attempt to better understand/master the universal magical forces beneath reality through the powers of shaping crystals to shape magical energy.
