A Lebanese girl has baffled doctors by producing tiny crystals from her eyes. For several months in 1996, 12-year-old Hasnah Mohamed Meselmani produced tiny crystals. Although the crystals were as sharp as cut glass, Hasnah said she feels no pain.

Share International's correspondent in Lebanon contacted the Meselmani family to find out more about the amazing phenomenon. It all began in March 1996, Hasnah told him. She was at school when she felt something strange in her left eye ― her first piece of crystal. Back home, she told her family what had happened and, while she was doing so, a second piece of crystal appeared in her eye.

"A few days later," she says, "I heard someone tapping at the window. I walked to the window and there I saw a man dressed in white. He was sitting on a white horse, he smiled at me and called me by name. He asked me if I would go outside to talk to him." Hasnah went out through the front door. There stood the "white knight," as she calls him. He was dressed from head to foot in a white tunic, which also covered his head and face. The "white knight" said she needn’t be afraid and he introduced himself to Hasnah as a "messenger from God."
