Crystals are as old as our earth. They litter our earth’s crust with their beauty, but crystals
aren’t just pretty rocks to look at. While crystals are geologically fascinating and visually
appealing, they also have a plethora of different healing properties. Crystal healing is a
practice that has been used for centuries to help alleviate joint and muscle pain, chronic
migraines, as well as reduce stress, boost confidence and immunity.
Crystalline is a publication that showcases the origins of crystal healing, do’s and don’ts of healing practices and gives an in depth look at four beginner crystals: Amethyst, Tourmaline, Opal and Quartz. Each section dives into its healing properties, geological origin and guidance on finding quality. Through attention to typography and page layout, my goal is to make learning about crystals fun and engaging. The project encourages people to do more research, visit local crystal shop and develop relationships with their crystals as well as use these stones to heal emotional, physical, or spiritual issues.
