The Book of Stones: Who They are and What They Teach

 

The Book of Stones

 By Robert Simmons and Naisha Absian

The Book of Stones is a new edition of the best-selling guide to some of Earth's most beautiful natural objects. Two introductory chapters detail the authors' theories about how to work with crystals and stones--including the concept of crystal resonance and the scientific observation that living organisms (such as ourselves) are liquid crystalline structures.

An illuminating alphabetical journey through the mineral kingdom, stone by stone, follows.

Each entry begins with the stone name and photo, plus its elemental and chakra correspondences, as well as keywords that indicate its properties.

Next comes a description of the crystal structure, hardness, history, and known locations of each mineral, plus any relevant legend or lore from the past.

Each author then offers an essay on the subtle energy properties and spiritual applications of the stone. The entries conclude with summaries of the spiritual, emotional, and physical healing qualities of the stone, and an affirmation for evoking its potential benefits.

The book's presentation is straightforward enough to make it an excellent introduction for beginners, yet the level of detail and the depth of research make it an invaluable resource for the most experienced stone practitioners.
