I've taught the use of crystals and gemstones for nearly 30 years and this remains the number one recommended book on every reading list I hand out. It's never been improved on and the rest of the competition pales by comparison.

I know it sounds corny but this book became a teacher to me and a mentor and was the first book (besides school text books) that I ever wrote in and you have to understand that books are sacred to me! My crystals spoke to me when they said 'take me home with you' and this book told me why I heard them and why I knew I wasn't crazy after all!

A great book if you already know about crystals, but not for the beginer.
Don't get me wrong I have learnt alot from this book, but I still required a refrence book with pictures so I could find which crystals where which.
I definatly recommed it for anyone wanting to extend their knowledge of the subject as it is easy to understand and wonderfully set out.

Enjoyable book,quite an 'oldie' now as it was written in the mid-eighties.
It contains lots of useful info,including explaining how crystals are formed,how to tune into them,ways to cleanse them (Be careful with both the salt and the sun/water methods as some fragile crystals can be damaged by these methods-if in doubt,use another type of cleansing.),lots of different ways to work with them;such as layouts,meditation etc.
Lots of very interesting uses for many of the well-known crystals such as quartz (in all its forms,i.e phantom,teacher,rainbow,cluster,record keeper,etc),rose quartz,citrine ,amethyst,obsidian,malachite,fluorite,etc.
Only minor bad point is that it gets a bit too 'new age' in places,personally I'm not convinced about things like atlantis,walk-ins and star-beings.I believe in the powers of crystals because I can feel them and see that they heal and help.
I definitely recommened this book to crystal lovers,its a uesful book written by an author who obviously loves crystals herself and has much wisdom to share about them.

Many books have been written on Crystal Healing, but Katrina Raphaell's books have stood the test of time. Still the clearest, most in-depth understanding of the ancient art of healing with gems, crystals and stones.
Her information is clear, insightful and right on the mark!

Katrina Raphaell in this book gives the layman an outstanding , and informative description of the crystals, their properties, and how to use them. Her writing is clear and to the point and well executed. I truly believe that her information is channelled from a higher plane. I highly recommend it for those who are starting on the crystal path.

This is the first of three books about crystalhealing. It shows in an easy way how to work with crystals and stones for spiritual- and personal evolvement, healing and balance in the everyday of life.

Katrina's books on crystal healing are by far some of the best around and are on the recommended reading lists of most crystal therapy tutors. I think what I like most about katrina's work is that I find it so easy to relate too, she has a lovely reader friendly writting style but still gets all the information across logically. I also find her view on certain crystals unique to other writers, but after spending time undertaking my own crystal meditations I find myself coming to the same conclusions. There is so much valuable information in this first volume of her work which nicely sets the scene for her other two books, which are also brilliant. I found the information on the crystal layouts most helpful and original and it has really encouraged me to experiment with my own layouts, using my intuition. It contains all the information you need to know on how to care for and use crystals for healing.

I will agree with what one reviewer has said that perhaps if you were just starting out in crystal healing you would need other books to accompany it as it does not contain pictures of the crystals, and some of the information is a little more advanced. but this is by no means a reason to give it less stars, the information it contains is invaluable and those just starting out in crystal healing will soon find themselves being drawn to this book as their knowledge and experience expands and grows.

This book really has helped me so much in completing my crystal therapy practitioner course and in expanding my knowledge and understanding of crystals, I cannot recommend it highly enough :)

This is a very interesting book on crystals particularly the quartz family. Lovely front cover which gets better in part 2 and 3, which continue the journey. Lots of practical advice. Well worth the read.
