A fashion-forward guide to living well with crystals from the jewelry editor of British Vogue—including guidance and advice from designers, jewelers, and celebrity crystal fans.
The New Stone Age guides you through fifteen different types of stones, categorized by color, and teaches you how to stylishly incorporate them into your wardrobe, home, and beyond. Assigning each crystal to a particular ailment of the modern age, whether it’s self-doubt, travel anxiety, or restlessness, Carol Woolton explains how a simple crystal worn around your neck, tossed in your purse, or sitting next to your computer can help inspire you to make positive changes in your life. Woolton traces the history of crystals, showing how the same quartz that was used as a form of protection in the handles of Egyptian daggers can also be hung near a bedside to help with burnout.
Filled with insights, facts, and real-life stories from people who attribute dramatic personal improvements to their crystals, The New Stone Age is a fun and informative idea book for crystal lovers everywhere.
