Research Notes
“When I was a kid, I loved collecting rocks at an old lead mine near my parents’ house. I often found rocks with tiny, but beautiful, quartz crystals. Writing this book gave me a chance to really understand what I was looking at all those years ago and what I see every time I look at the engagement ring my husband gave me."
