How Do Crystals Form?

Crystals are formed when atoms or molecules arrange themselves in an ordered pattern, often resulting in a geometric shape. This process is known as crystallization and can occur in a variety of ways.One common way crystals form is through cooling of a liquid or gas. As the temperature drops, the atoms or molecules in the substance slow down and begin to stick together in a specific pattern. This can result in the formation of a solid crystal.Another way crystals form is through precipitation from a solution. In this case, the solute (the substance being dissolved) exceeds its solubility limit and...
