In the instructive foreword, she describes the eight fundamental crystal structures, historical uses, and elemental formation. She also gives directions for activating crystals? cleansing and healing properties and discusses their relationship to chakras. Five hundred gorgeous, sensuously colored photographs accompany the entries.
