A group of rare rock crystals found at the burial site in the Stone Age

Hundreds of sparkling crystal fragments discovered at prehistoric burial site – ScienceAlert

Hundreds of fragments of a rare type of transparent quartz called “rock crystal” indicate that Neolithic people used the mineral to decorate tombs and other structures at a ceremonial site in western England, Archaeologists Say.

The rock crystals were likely brought to the site from a source more than 80 miles (130 kilometers) away, over mountainous terrain, and the crystals appear to have been carefully crushed into much smaller pieces, possibly during a community gathering to watch the work of what seemed like a magical substance. .
