What Others Have Found

There is much wisdom in the world

It is important to realize that there are many voices in the world, and much wisdom. The world of crystals has a long and rich tradition of experimentation and learning.

The use and energies of crystals is the subject of many books, articles, and studies. In today's world there are many excellent writers who have devoted a considerable amount of their time and energy to studying and understanding the power and energy of crystals.

Several writers are very popular, based on the insight they have brought to our understanding.

 

 

Love is in the Earth

Melody with her series of books is a noted authority. I commend her Love Is in the Earth: A Kaleidoscope of Crystals " It is a seminal work.

 

book of Stones

The Book of Stones: Who They Are and What They Teach by Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian has proven to be very popular. It is sold at many mineral dealers's sites. I saw quite a few vendors selling it at the major gems shows, too. In this book, Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian give us their insights into the metaphysical uses and meanings of a wide variety of crystals and stones.

Reading the perspectives of two different authors side-by-side give a fascinating glimpse into the energies of the many crystals discussed. You need this book.

Stones of the New Consciousness

Robert Simmons ' new book continues the tradition of The Book of Stones, and brings extensive information on an additional 62 stones. In this Stones of the New Consciousness he discusses the new consciousness telling us it is an awakening of understanding of our partnership with the soul of the Earth.

There are introductory chapter on A New Crystal Vision, The New Consciousness, The Liquid Body Matrix, Crystal Meditation and Healing with Stones among others. The discussions of the 62 stones are excellent and the photographs are exceptional. It will take you a long time to digest this book, but worth your time if you seek understanding.

Gems in Myth

 

Gems in Myth, Legend and Lore Revised Edition by Bruce Knuth is a fascinating and readable review of the history of gems and minerals and their uses and properties. Highly recommended.

 

Encyclopedia of Crystals

Judy Hall has been a valuable contributor. Her Encyclopedia of Crystals is insightful and extremely well illustrated.

 

The Crystal Bible

The Crystal Bible: A Definitive Guide to Crystals is also excellent and has illustrations of over 200 crystals.

 

 

crystal bible 2

The excellent Crystal Bible has been supplemented with the new Crystal Bible 2.

This new book adds over 200 new crystals and expands on the uses of several discussed in the original book.

Judy Hall is extraordinary, and this book along with its predecessor is truly a crystal bible I use constantly.

 

New crystal bible

Cassandra Eason New Crystal Bible is a fantastic resource. It has over 500 crystals photographed and explained in great detail. It is a fantastic resource and the book I carry around with me when I am seeking crystals.
