“From the opening paragraph of the introduction to the very final pages — this book is exciting, delightful, and informative. Nicholas Pearson has a special way of sharing his knowledge about crystals that could make anyone fall in love with their beauty, their mythology and lore, and the magic that they create when we work in harmony with them. His guidance leads us through foundational knowledge of how and why crystals work, and he goes on to share an in-depth look at a truly amazing array of stones.

This pocket book may be small, but it’s substantial in the vast number of stones described, including not only common minerals, but also more unique stones that I’ve yet to see described elsewhere. Touching on the most important qualities of each stone, helpful correspondences, and geological information for each, this guide is a treasure that will have a place on my favorites list for many years to come.”
