Over the last three decades, Lawrence Stoller's CrystalWorks has been pioneering an extraordinary new art form, the cutting and polishing of mega-crystals and -gemstones, which can weigh up to a ton, and combining them with bronze bases and light, becoming sculptures of transcendent splendor. Primal Beauty features an extraordinary collection of these works, each paired with a poignant, inspiring quotation from a distinguished voice to illuminate an aspect of art, aesthetics, wisdom, nature, ecology, evolution, physics, or metaphysics that accentuates the presence and raw power of each crystal sculpture. Enhanced with behind-the-scenes stories of Stoller's adventures traveling the globe sourcing the stones and meditations on crystal's mineralogical qualities and arcane meanings, hundreds of stunning photographs capture these beings of "frozen light"; in all their exquisite geometry, transporting us to mysterious otherworlds."The most powerful art combines beauty with meaning, transforming the observer into a participant." - LS
