The geological formation of the crystal mountain

Crystal Mountain is one of the most expensive mountains in the world. It looks like a small arch made of rocks, and when the sun shines on it, it sparkles and shines like a king’s crown made of thousands of precious and colourful jewels in the middle of a desert. This masterpiece has become a treasure that everyone looking for money and wealth wants to find. This is why it draws so many international and local tourists. They usually want to see life through a rocky gem scattered in the most beautiful view

The myth of the crystal mountain

There are signs from the past that the area was made when a large meteorite hit the Earth. And caused very high temperatures, which melted the rocks into pieces of valuable crystal.The next sight of this first day is the Crystal Mountain, a ridge made of sparkling quartz crystals. We continue our tour and reach the beautiful Agabat Valley, known for its scores of rock sugarloaves (you might want to check out the raving reviews on TripAdvisor).


Can you take crystals from there

One very important thing to note is that you should never break off the crystals on the mountain. These crystals take many, many years to form, and breaking them would be ruining a piece of history. Additionally, you should not choose to pick up the pieces of crystal that scatter the landscape around the ridge.
