    OK so i got that from the old faithful Google translate at first i scared my self when i searched with Google images and a abundance of commercials for the hochland cheese brand surfaced . so the translation was clear to me what isn't so Cristal is why is this item called that for what reason , it's origins , usage in some civilian , political or military groups ? sorry if it's so annoying with all these questions but i really want to know .
