Based on extensive research in both the history and tradition of talismans and the more modern human psychological studies of the fundamental effects of color on human bodies and minds, we now know the real, natural effects of gemstone, crystal andmineralcolor influence rays. This wisdom is captured in the Great Talismanic Color Wheel of Influence provided in this guide and explained in much more detail in the book, The Seven Secrets of Crystal Talismans, by Henry Mason.
