In ancient times, rock crystal was believed to be ice that never melted. The Greek word for crystal, krystallos, means ice. In Rome, the belief that quartz was permanently frozen ice inspired the Romans to carve spheres or rings out of quartz to give a “cooling” effect during warm months. Much work was done on colours and prisms, thanks to Sir Isaac Newton and a natural quartz crystal. He discovered that refracting sunlight through the quartz allowed him to study the colours of the rainbow in great detail. Also, quartz is piezoelectric and pyroelectric, which means it can turn pressure or heat into electromagnetic energy. It is used today in all sorts of functions, such as watches, microphones, computer chips and other electronic circuitry.
