Crystal Geometry and Crystal Colors are the first books I wrote and illustrated. The crystal / shell kits are used for educational and artistic activities.
"Why does this pyrite crystal grow as a cube?" The natural crystal angles are
the angles of the chemical bonds.
"How does oxygen get into this quartz crystal?"
Because it breathes! JUST JOKING!
Oxygen and Silicon combine as the crystal grows.
The activities promote deep, connected learning that sticks.
The third book, Crystal Clouds, is underway.
DRAGONS LOVE CRYSTALS!
Golden dragons carve a
trance-stone globe to communicate.
Ice dragons use magnetic stones
for their ice games and sculptures.
I love collecting crystals, rocks, and fossils. The Dragon Dreamer books began because this ceramic bowl with my odd rock seemed like a dragon's nest.
