According to Tommy James himself, "when I wrote Crystal Blue, it was taken from the book of Revelation: the imagery of the new Jerusalem." But I prefer to think that the "blue crystal" is really the planet Earth. This song was a big hit in 1969, the year man landed on the moon, and television viewers saw a beautiful blue round crystal sphere photographed from space.
But if we want to consider further what "blue crystal" really has the power to persuade us to have world peace, consider the Silicon Solar Cell.
As BluCrystl says: "The silicon solar cell is a true crystal, blue in color, no pollution, no environmental danger, sufficient power ( I wonder how mankind survived before the use of fossil fuel energy, coal , oil, etc.) and I cannot see one country going to war over another's silicon solar cell photovoltaic panels."
