This book may be pocket-sized but it is a treasure trove of knowledge. The encyclopedia element is hugely comprehensive and features 450 crystals, including familiar ones as well as rarer and more unusual crystals, such as phenakite, cavansite, and yooperlite which you may not have used before. Each entry features an attractive colour photo of the stone and defines its physical, emotional, and metaphysical healing properties as well as its corresponding chakra, element, planet, and zodiac sign. The author also covers the basics of crystal healing, why crystals work, how to select stones and safe and effective cleansing methods, alongside hands-on techniques and practices for you to try. It’s a great beginners’ guide, but will also be appealing to anyone already healing with crystals, because it’s portable and so comprehensive.
