In the ancient world there were three medicine kingdoms: animal, vegetable, and mineral. Following her previous acclaimed volumes on animal (The Illustrated Bestiary) and vegetable (The Illustrated Herbiary), Maia Toll fulfills the call for mineral with The Illustrated Crystallary, exploring the mystical qualities of 36 fascinating crystals and minerals, including gold, silver, copper, amethyst, hematite, mica, smokey quartz, emerald, ruby, and more.
Combining bits of ancient wisdom with her own distinctive insights, best-selling author Maia Toll explores the mystical qualities of 36 gems and minerals, including turquoise, topaz, opal, quartz, and more.
Evocative illustrations by Kate OHara illuminate the qualities and symbolism of each stone and are featured on a set of pull-out oracle cards included.
Ritual practices and questions for reflection and journaling invite readers to explore the life lessons each crystal offers.
