The crystal mountain (Gunung Keriang) is in Alor Setar, Kedah, about 8 km from the city centre. It is a 250 million year old lump of mainly limestone rock (218 meters in height). It is geologically unique, the mountain is riddled with caves & 10 different rocks are found here including attractive calcite crystals which are much sought after by collectors.
