Rocks!

What's the difference between

ROCKS, MINERALS, and CRYSTALS?

ROCKS are made of one or more minerals, and may not have a defined internal structure or chemical composition. They may also include organic material.

MINERALS are naturally occurring solids made up of one or more element. The molecule must have a definite chemical composition and make a specific internal structure. They are inorganic meaning that they aren't made of plant or animal. 

Crystals are defined as any inorganic solid with a definite chemical structure. Therefore all minerals are crystals, and may crystallize differently under different conditions!
