Book Description

Aug 2002
Ancient peoples believed that crystals had a spirit that acted as a mediator between worlds, bringing things into being. They hold the vibrations of thoughts and intentions and put them to work for you. "Crystal User's Handbook" describes the history and ancient use of crystals. Each section shows you how to benefit from the power of crystals, from using crystals to attract a lover or to uplift your relationship to using crystals in magic. Learn how to balance and enrich your living space, improve your creativity, clean and protect your space, attract abundance and use crystals for divination. Discover how crystals can transform energy-sapping feelings such as worry and fear, and promote positive feelings, induce a sense of confidence and boost self-worth. A crystal dictionary describes the qualities, use and appearance of a wide variety of crystals. Harnessing the unique powers of crystals may help you to heal and transform your life.

As does recognising why ancient peoples chose these incredible sites in the first place. By activating a connection to one site, you automatically connect with all other sites in the system. You will find all of this information within this book together with journeys of the imagination that take you to the site with the assistance of your crystal travel agent.

I saw this book on a friends house and I liked it. I have other crystal books but this one was as complement to the rest in the sense of applications with the crystals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, easy to follow and implement 2 Dec 2007
By EnergyHealer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great book! I purchased it on a whim about a year ago and have found it extremely useful. It's very well illustrated, easy to reference, has great photos, and I like how they explain both the healing properties of the crystals and how to use them in daily life. You can look up info on individual crystals/gemstones, by type of healing needed, by astrological sign, placement types for healings (e.g. to wear it vs. place next to bed), etc. All the examples are very current and can be applied immediately to any situation. Every time I read it I find more to enjoy about it and learn. Before this book I wasn't that in to crystals, but its been so easy to get in to that I find myself more and more intrigued with the depth of the knowledge this book offers. I would definitely recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good beginner book 28 Sep 2007
By Josie Noecker - Published on Amazon.com
I find the Crystal User's Handbook to be more of an introductory book to crystals and their uses. It was one of the first crystal books I purchased when I became interested in the uses and properties of crystals.
Overall the book is divided up into sections, crystals for stress relief, relaxation, physical well-being, immune system, etc. In each section there is a basic list of stones/crystals that would be helpful.
I did find interesting in the Physical Well-Being section, it shows on figures which areas are most commonly affected due to your Zodiac sign.
The book also has a brief introduction to the chakras, and states what each chakra does or represents.
There are also sections that state which crystals help with your home, workplace, love, and protection. Also a nice little section about the different ways one can cleanse and care for their crystals.
Lastly there is a section about which crystals are beneficial to a persons' zodiac sign, a basic directory for crystals and what ailments they help, and lastly a brief Gemstone and Crystal directory.
If you are wanting a book that goes more into what exactly each crystal and gemstone are I would not recommend this book. If you are wanting a book that starts you off into learning about working with crystals and gemstones; what they can be used for, how to care for them, etc. then this book is a great start.
