Primal Beauty: The Sculptural Artistry of CrystalWorks


Over the last three decades, Lawrence Stoller and his CrystalWorks studio have been pioneering an extraordinary new art form: the cutting and polishing of megacrystals and large gemstones, many of museum quality and some weighing a ton or more. Carved rare Earth crystals combined with bronze bases and light become sculptures of transcendent splendor. By taking a raw crystal in its natural state and painstakingly refining it to reveal the mystery within, Stoller opens a doorway into an alluring realm, hidden for millions of years.

Primal Beauty features an extraordinary collection of CrystalWorks’ sculptures, each paired with a poignant, inspiring quotation from a distinguished voice to illuminate an aspect of art, aesthetics, wisdom, beauty, nature, ecology, evolution, physics, or metaphysics that accentuates the presence and raw power of these monumental pieces. Enhanced with behind-the-scenes stories of Stoller’s adventures, traveling the globe and sourcing the stones, and accompanied by meditations on the crystals’ mineralogical qualities and arcane meanings, hundreds of stunning photographs capture these beings of “frozen light” in all their exquisite geometry and majesty, transporting us to mysterious otherworlds.
