Amazing Locations! Crystal Gemstone Mountain in Egypt
Now this is an impressive sight to see. Check out Crystal Mountain in Egypt, which is literally a mountain of crystals. Anyone who visits this beautiful place will get super charged by all of the amazing crystals that make up the mountain. The crystals are mostly Calcite and Barite which are grown from limestone. This magical site was formed during the Oligocene era most likely, and has become a popular tourist destination for those who love crystals, and for those who just have to see what a crystal mountain is all about. These crystals form because of the intense heat of volcanic matter mixed with limestone and other minerals. Upon cooling, the crystalline formations are created, leaving us with these gorgeous looking crystals that cover the sand dunes and hillsides.

The colours of calcite vary depending on the other minerals that are involved in the creation of the crystal. Some are clear, which make them appear to be similar to quartz crystals.
