Crystals have become an essential part of any new age life. Previously only hung in well lit windows and around necks, crystals are now known to be the centre of all healing and spiritual powers. A tiger's eye on the breast to thin the blood, and jasper on the forehead to cure a headache and increase one's sense of spiritual well being. A small bag of crystals will cost less than a year's supply of aspirin and weekly church donations, and the macramé pot holder is often thrown in free.

This entry has been classified as 'Mostly Harmless' while it awaits additional research.
