Background

A description of the experience

Andrew Lang - The Making of Religion – Chapter V – Crystal Visions, Savage and Civilised

The case of the Inca, Yupanqui, is very curious.  ’As he came up to a fountain he saw a piece of crystal fall into it, within which he beheld a figure of an Indian in the following shape ...  The apparition then vanished, while the crystal remained.  The Inca took care of it, and they say that he afterwards saw everything he wanted in it.’
