Three identical words make up one word.

They are not words. They are radicals or characters.

The list of repeated characters can be found here.

Seems like they just want to emphasize "a lot of"

森 Forest, like 林

品 Goods, article, item

晶 Sparkle, Clear, Crystal

From others, I know their components. A lot of animals, elements, body parts etc. This one I am not sure about: 骉.

马 is the simplified form of 馬, so the traditional form of 骉 would be 驫.

For learners, it might be worth learning only the following characters -- these are the ones which are actually used in modern Chinese. I've tried to organize them in descending order of importance / frequency.

品 pin3 -- product, goods, as in 产品 product, 品牌 brand, etc.

众 zhong4 -- crowd, masses, as in 公众 public, 众多 numerous (众 is the simplified form of 眾)

森 sen1 -- forest, as in 森林 forest

晶 jing1 -- crystal, as in 晶体

矗 chu4 as in 矗立 standing tall (used to describe buildings)

鑫 xin1 -- prosperity (lots of money), used in names of stores

The others are obscure variant forms that long ago fell out of everyday use, about as useful as the old English letters eth and thorn. While English has a small handful of discarded letters, Chinese has them by the tens of thousands.
