The Roman historian Pliny the Elder believed quartz to be ice, water permanently frozen after great lengths of time. The word “crystal” comes from the Greek word κρύσταλλος, “ice”. He also describes the use of crystal balls by fortune tellers, a practice that continued throughout the centuries, the Renaissance and the Victorian era. Some crystal balls were mounted in gold to be used as jewellery, dating from the 6th or 8th century. These mysterious balls were found exclusively in the possession of women during the Merovingian era of the Frankish king Childeric and his successors.
