The purpose of this book is to provide an understanding on how to build crystal grids to use as a meditation practice to focus your intentions. It is an effective way to foster clarity, along with alignment between the conscious and subconscious mind. If you are collecting crystals, you are probably creating crystal grids, even if you are not aware of it! A crystal grid is created when you place or combine two or more crystals in proximity to one another. This combination creates a unique synergy between the crystals that feels different than each of the individual crystals on their own... not better, just different. If you would like to take your crystal grids to the next level and really amplify their potency, start building them with purposeful intentions!

The present book provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to the topics of crystallography and diffraction for undergraduate and beginning graduate students and lecturers in physics, chemistry, materials and earth sciences, but will also be of interest to the layperson who wishes toknow about these topics beyond the level given in more general trade science books. The book shows how crystal structures may be built up from simple ideas of atomic packing and co-ordination, and develops the concepts of crystal symmetry, point and space groups by way of two-dimensional examples ofpatterns and tilings. Furthermore, the concept of the reciprocal lattice is explained in simple terms and its importance in an understanding of light, x-ray and electron diffraction shown. Finally, the book covers practical examples of the applications of these techniques, and describes theimportance of diffraction in the performance of optical instruments. For this second edition, the existing material has been thoroughly updated, additional figures and exercises have been supplied and two new chapters added. From reviews on the 1/e: '... This is a timely, well-constructed bookwhich should be seriously considered by every teacher of crystallography and can be recommended to anyone who wants to get to grips with crystallography and diffraction.' P. Goodhew, Journal of Microscopy, June 1998 'IUCr publications have always been outstanding for quality of presentation andexposition and this book maintains that high standard.' J.E.
