The real physical conditions of appearance the negative dielectric permittivity (DP) within frequency TL splitting of polar vibrations in crystals are discussed in this paper. We have derived the simple quantitative criterion for the existence of negative DP band using single oscillation model. Our criterion is presented in three equivalent forms as inequalities between the fundamental crystal constants and spectroscopic parameters of polar vibration. Applicability of our theoretical results for multimode case is demonstrated using 7 known polar vibrations in the model crystal of boron nitride.
