ancient and mystical, crystals possess the healing power of the earth
and are a concentrated "receiver" for healing vibrations
as well as a tool for mental and spiritual focus. Just as quartz crystals
are used in modern day technology for receiving and stabilizing electronic
frequencies, the ancients honored and utilized the mystical properties
I've found The Book of Stones: Who They Are & What They Teach by Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian to be an excellent, indepth reference book for the metaphysical, spiritual, physical and scientific properties of gemstones, crystals and minerals. The beautiful, full-color photos are a valuable tool for identification.
A classic comprehensive reference book on the metaphysical properties
of crystals, minerals, gems and stones is Love
Is in the Earth: A Kaleidoscope of Crystals by Melody. This
is often considered "The Bible" for crystal workers and metaphysical
students. Her companion book, Love
Is in the Earth - Mineralogical Pictorial is a fantastic
resource for identification, featuring full-color photographs of more
crystals and minerals than you believed existed.
