#### How do crystals make rainbows?

This process is called dispersion. Refraction – the white light is separated and bent according to its colour then refracted again and continues to leave the prism at different angles which creates an effect similar to a rainbow. Each colour has a certain wavelength and its own unique refraction angle.
