The Illustrated Crystallary Review:

Animal, vegetable, and mineral medicines existed in the ancient world. Maia Toll, author of the earlier volumes The Illustrated Bestiary and the Illustrated Herbiary, follows up with a book on Mineral crystals that examines 36 incredible crystals, including amethyst, hematite, mica, and more.

Toll combines aspects of ancient wisdom with her own thoughts to illuminate the significance of each stone for readers today. The mirror-like obsidian surface reflects the self’s shadow corners, serving as the implement for cutting those aspects loose. On Earth, turquoise possesses a turquoise blue sky-like color, balancing the opposing focus. Kate O Hara’s striking, crystal illustrated images are in both the text and the bonus cars bound inside the book.
