Tatiana Dorow, the founder of the Dorow Collection, regards the crystals within the collection as time capsules, preserving evidence of ancient geological events. As a tribute to her Brazilian roots, she selected "Arquivistas," the Portuguese word for archivist, as the name of this book. Featuring 150 full-page images, Arquivistas serves as a comprehensive record of this exceptional collection. The book's foreword, written by Alan Hart, CEO of The Gemmological Association of Great Britain, adds to its uniqueness, making it a distinct gift that rare mineral collectors and enthusiasts will treasure as a valuable addition to their collection.

"I’m a life long lover of crystals. I grew up in Denver, Colorado where sometimes you’d find ”Mica” on the side of the road. And maybe it started there. As I’ve traveled the world with my music career, I’ve been able to see SO MANY DIFFERENT crystals. Tatiana’s gallery … I’ve never seen or more importantly FELT, anything like that. On the occasion that I’ve been able to spend solo time alone in the gallery 6 hours passed like it was nothing. These incredible photographs, capture a focused and close up view of the diversity and rarity and BEAUTY of the Dorow Collection. I’m honored to have visited this space, and the book .. I pray it carries the healing energy of this gallery into the hands of every reader."

"Arquivistas compelling visuals demonstrate the power and beauty of nature. The photography
lends itself to a larger conversation within the realms of naturalism and fine art. The harmonious
play of light, color and composition tells a story of "Lokahi" — a Hawaiian term that reminds us to
live in unity with the world around us."
