Thank you to NetGallery for my free copy, in exchange for an honest review. This book was so good to look through, I pre-ordered a hard copy for my bookshelf. I’ve always loved crystals, gems and precious stones, I keep them around the home, car and my desk. What a great book! Let’s get into it

Kim’s Review- 5 Very Informative Stars

What I loved about this book was the level of detail, from both a scientific and  spiritual  view point. The book covers what makes a stone a stone, a gem a gem and a crystal a crystal scientifically. Something I was not fully clear on. In addition, it then goes into detail about the kind of stones, crystals and gems that can be used  for certain things, and gives a lot of clarity. It also takes into consideration different cultural view points on things like colours of stones, their energies.

The book also is very detailed on things like the history of gems and crystals, how to use them, why you should use them etc.  I would sum it up as an encyclopedia of some sort,  ideal for someone with no knowledge, as well as those more advanced from their previous reading, or understanding.

Not everything in the book will be relevant, this is more like a resource book, you can dip in seek out what you need clarity on, or to learn about and dip out. The book also has a very detailed section on how to assess what kind of stones may benefit you, and how to select stones.

Overall, I recommend this book to anyone who has a fascination with crystals and stones, collects them or would like to learn a bit more about their benefits and uses. From a flick through, I found a few chapters I’d like to explore in detail, and would prefer a hard copy so I can use my highlighter! I can’t wait until it arrives in January. A cool book to have on the bookshelf. Five stars from me due to the level of detail and versatile use, scientific and spiritual view point on gems, stones and crystals to help benefit reader’s understanding on the subject matters.
