Quartz Crystal Types and Features

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

Explore the color varieties of quartz crystals with Crystal Bill, author of Elegant Crystal Treasures. We’ll examine clear quartz, amethyst, Morion, ametrine, rose quartz, citrine, smoky quartz and others. Bill shares his magnificent close-up photos of quartz shapes and surface textures.

Open a world where thousands of types of quartz and silicates exist to bring inspiration on your life path. Learn all about the unique patterns of quartz-striations, elestials, frequency filters, inner pyramids, inclusions, phantoms, rafters, extra facets, diamond windows, and crystal etchings. Bring your favorite crystals to be identified. 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.
