Ice is the solid-state of water that has been frozen.

Ice is recognized as a mineral since it is a crystalline solid that is naturally occurring. The presence of impurities like bubbles of air or soil makes ice appear transparent or opaque blue-white color.

Ice has been used for food preservation and cooling for centuries now. It was harvested in various forms and then transitioned to mechanical production. The first case of ice cargo in the United States was sent in 1799 from New York City to Charleston, South Carolina. By the mid-1900s, ice harvesting became a booming business.
