Crystal Books

There have been a lot of excellent new crystal books published in the last couple of years, and while I can't buy them all, I endeavor to keep up with the ones written by popular authors.

Of the more recent books, in particular I can recommend quite a few books written by Judy Hall, including Crystal Bible Three.
