Robert Simmons starts with some scientific information plus its origin then some interesting information on the stones discovery and history. The articles are in depth exploring the stone on all levels from self work to healing others and a second author gives her take on each stone adding to this wealth of information based on the authors experiences of the stones energy. This really is a metaphysical encyclopedia and will have you hunting out some of these new stones which many believe have been discovered for our own spiritual evolution. This is a must for crystal collectors and healers.
Some of the more exotic high frequency stones you can learn about are: Aqua Lemuria, Merkabite, Ohio Celestite, Fairy Wand Quartz, Gaia Stone, Lemurian Seed, Lemurian Midnight Jade, Nuummite, Pink Lazurine, Shiva Lingum, Tibetan Black Quartz.
this book is exciting! the introduction sucks you in, inviting you to read on and explore the amazing crystals. the book is written by 2 authors, each of them giving you their knowledge on each crystal. it is full of valuable information and absolutely jam packed with fine details. it is like no other crystal book i have ever read!
the authors are absolutely dedicated to crystals and their passion is obvious throughout the book.
please dont dismiss other crystal books i have recommended previously. they are great books and serve their purpose extremely well. but to me this book is in a league of its own and for any one out there reading this who loves crystals i would recommend it one hundred percent.
My edition does indeed have an index at the back with physical complaints and then another one for metaphysical, so I can find whatever I want fairly easily.
Well worth the money in my opinion as I suspect it'll be my first choice in reference now and I have a few crystal books, I seem to collect them like I collect crystals.
A must for all crystal lovers and better than any other book on crystals I have read - more detailed and more exciting. An essential book to have if you want to expand your knowledge of the crystal kingdom.
I was intially disappointed with it, the layout of the book is not as slick as the 'The Crystal Bible.' This book is simply not easy to use as a reference book, there is no index at the back of the book, so if you're interested in say stones that aid diabetes, telepathy or whatever you have to read the entire the book and make notes, and this will need to be repeat for everything you are interested in. The description of each stone are detailed by the two main authors, and although there is little direct repetition it means there is alot of information to get through!!!
In fact I have had to read the entire book several times, and when I see text that I find interesting I underline it and then construct my own index! This is the only book I've ever written in!!
The result is a hard read but worth it in the end! It's just so frustrating it could be so much better by something so simple.
