    Crystallization is the (natural or artificial) process of formation of solid crystals precipitating from a solution, melt or more rarely deposited directly from a gas. Crystallization is also a chemical solid–liquid separation technique, in which mass transfer of a solute from the liquid solution to a pure solid crystalline phase occurs. In chemical engineering crystallization occurs in a crystallizer. Crystallization is therefore an aspect of precipitation, obtained through a variation of the solubility conditions of the solute in the solvent, as compared to precipitation due to chemical reaction.

    There are many examples of natural process that involve crystallization.

    Geological time scale process examples include:

    Natural (mineral) crystal formation (see also gemstone);
    Stalactite/stalagmite, rings formation.
    Usual time scale process examples include:

    Snow flakes formation;
    Honey crystallization (nearly all types of honey crystallize).
