“One of the most surprising aspects of the crystal world is its pervasiveness. All solid matter is made up of atomic particles  arranged in some definite organized crystalline structure., called a ‘lattice’. The crystal lattice structure, especially as it is found in minerals such as electromagnetic energies that move through it. This is why silicon chips are used to provide memory in computers. It is also the reason Quartz crystals can be incorporated into watches and clocks to provide highly accurate measurements of time.” ~Robert Simmons The Book of Stones (Who They Are & What They Teach) Here are some links to pages I’m currently working on:
