Crystal and mineral pronunciations can sometimes be difficult, especially when you take into consideration different accents or country grammar rules. Often, there may be more than one accepted pronunciation.

I am a simple gal from the USA, so use the simple hooked on phonics approach. These have been researched and compared with other USA pronunciation files for accuracy.

This page is dedicated to the letter A –crystal and mineral pronunciations. This is not a complete list. Many names like Amber or Agate are easy and common so are not included to save space (for now).
