I'm pretty much a sucker for science, well-thought out concepts, men in felt hats/spies of a certain era-illustrations and all about/how to books or old school instruction manuals - meaning I'm excited about this series!
"From crystal caves and ancient rituals to transistors and terrorists, CRYSTALS lurk everywhere - even outer space. Find out what makes a crystal grow, why they were worshiped and where to find the world’s largest specimens in this illustrated guide.
