What is a hydrated crystal?


Hydrated crystals are chemical crystals that are made up of water as a component of both its chemical formula and crystal structure. Some crystalline substances are naturally found in anhydrous and hydrated states, and occasionally the anhydrous form will have a different colour or appearance than the hydrated form.
