My dad had this book in his library and the cover was very memorable. The book was lost at some point and neither of us can remember the title or author. If I remember correctly, I believe the woman on the cover was riding some kind of motorcycle or hover bike (a bit reminiscent of the anime 'Akira'). I think the character was a crystal hunter.

I think you're thinking of Anne McCaffrey's "Killashandra"; The second book in the Crystal Singer series.


The main character is called a "Crystal singer" and makes money by finding and selling rare crystals.
