I have been an avid collector of gems and minerals for 30 years and interested in their metaphysical properties for 20 years, using them to heal myself and others, so I think I am qualified to say this little book is a Godsend! I have many books on the subject, great, good and not-so; anyone who is likewise interested will agree that trawling through the 'new age'(oh, what has that term come to represent?!) book selection can be a minefield, and many a pretty penny can be lost on regurgiated half-remembered truths. Then there are little gems (pardon the pun)like this that will hardly ever grace the bookcase because it is in constant use - destined to become well worn, dog-eared with corners folded down and added footnotes!
The book describes different methods of energising water with crystals with clear and concise instructions, storage and shelf life aswell as different applications, dosage and reactions. It gives great 'recipies' for specific mixtures plus an index list of crystals and their uses and effects. Most importantly it clearly lists crystals that are toxic and are not to be placed directly in water, which even in the best books I have previously read I have had to trawl through to find. All in all, I love this book so much I have ordered 4 more copies for my friends! - Go on - Buy It! what else can you get for a fiver these days?
