Question Is there a particular way to define crystalline structures in GEANT4?

I am currently developing a program where I need to define a geometry with YAG (yttrium aluminum garnet; Y3Al5O12) material. It is a crystalline structure. I was wondering can I simply define it by giving its fractional parts like:

    G4Material* H2O = new G4Material(name="Water",density,ncomponents=2);
    H2O->AddElement(elH, natoms=2);
    H2O->AddElement(elO, natoms=1);

Or is there a particular way to define crystal?

If there is pre-defined YAG material in GEANT4 database, please let me know. My work will become easier.

Thank you!
