>>PASADENA, Calif. -- Tiny crystals of a green mineral called olivine are falling down like rain on a burgeoning star,
>>according to observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.
>>This is the first time such crystals have been observed in the dusty clouds of gas that collapse around forming stars.
>>Astronomers are still debating how the crystals got there, but the most likely culprits are jets of gas blasting away from the embryonic star.
>>"You need temperatures as hot as lava to make these crystals," said Tom Megeath of the University of Toledo in Ohio.
>>He is the principal investigator of the research and the second author of a new study appearing in Astrophysical Journal Letters.
>>"We propose that the crystals were cooked up near the surface of the forming star, then carried up into the surrounding cloud where
>>temperatures are much colder, and ultimately fell down again like glitter."
