Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Verb Strong's Number: g2929 Greek: krustallizo

Clear, Clearing, Clearly:

"to shine like crystal, to be of crystalline brightness, or transparency," is found in Rev 21:11, "clear as crystal." The verb may, however, have a transitive force, signifying "to crystallize or cause to become like crystal." In that case it would speak of Christ (since He is the "Lightgiver," see the preceding part of the verse), as the One who causes the saints to shine in His own likeness.

B-1 Adjective Strong's Number: g2986 Greek: lampros

Clear, Clearing, Clearly:

is said of crystal, Rev 22:1, AV, "clear," RV, "bright.

Clear, Clearing, Clearly:

from tele, "afar," and auge, "radiance," signifies "conspicuously, or clearly," Mar 8:25, of the sight imparted by Christ to one who had been blind. Some mss. have delaugos, "clearly" (delos, "clear").
