Life is anything that uses the materials and energy flow within its environment to have a stable, controlled and self replicating existence.
This process clearly excludes crystals which are merely an ordered and more stable state formed by solid materials in response to the geometrical shape and bonding processes in their molecules
crystals can form spontaneously in the absence of a seed
I am not sure why you have this thing about crystals they are just geometric arrangements of molecules most of which take up the lowest energy shape. they may be pretty but they have no dynamism.
