Giant Crystals

  • East West Bookshop 324 Castro Street Mountain View, CA, 94041 United States (map)

Gems and crystals fascinate people through glowing colors and sparkling light. Even tiny faceted stones create a visual wonder for inspiring beauty. What are the effects of larger stones? How large do crystals grow? In beautiful photos from around the world, see crystals that grew to over 6’ tall, 10’ tall, 20’ tall and more.

Journey with Crystal Bill to caves in Brazil, Arkansas and Mexico, and learn how fast crystals grow, and how long they are underground. We’ll also learn how fast and large crystals can grow under controlled laboratory conditions. There will be plenty of time to ask questions, learn about any stones you bring tonight, and a chance to buy new crystal treasures for your altar.

(Bill will teach a different program about crystals every Wednesday in August; an extraordinary learning opportunity)

News: We are extremely proud to host Bill’s beautiful museum-quality crystals at East West. They are a new permanent display, with new treasures coming in throughout the year. Thanks to Bill, East West is home to one of the largest crystal selections in California.
