Rock crystal, one of many types of quartz crystals (SiO2), is a type of gem. When combined with pearlash at a glass furnace, it can be used to make crystal glass items.

Crystal glass is slightly complicated to produce, but can also be cut into gems with five times the material value, made into crafts and furniture that will keep your dwarves happy, and even utilized as a magma safe building material.

It is intended to be possible to find as small clusters in all stone types, though in practice it tends to be very uncommon, primarily due to the abundance of other types of gems.
