Crystals are beautiful in person. Especially when you hold them up to the light and see how the light brings out depth and secrets with every turn of your wrist.
It is rare that you see artwork that can represent something that has so much inner light and fire. Most attempts to replicate the shimmer of a crystal fall beyond recognition of such beauty.
The rare exception is Maia Toll's depiction of drawn crystals. Her use of color and depth of expression bring the crystals to life in ways that I've never seen before in hand drawn artwork.
On each card she adds symbolism artfully entwined with the crystals. Oracle cards are tools for our own intuition and she brings in so many components for our intuition to connect with and then receive inspiration.
The more I use these cards they more they seem to 'talk' to me. It's a joy to work with something that resonates so well with my own intuition.
The 36 oracle cards from Maia Toll's popular book The Illustrated Crystallary are now available in a premium deck of cards in a sturdy box set, accompanied by a short guidebook that introduces the symbolism of each crystal and explains how to use the cards as a tool for personal growth, spiritual exploration, and creative discovery.
