Explanation: I've found lots of "crital* that were typos for *cristal* (and a few typos for *critical*). I also found a site that claimed to be the "route du crital" in Lorraine, again, a typo (lots and lots of web hits for "route du cri*s*tal).
Why anyone would want to muddy crystal is beyond me, too. Also, this really looks like an attempt at French by someone who doesn't know very much of same...
