About The Pocket Book of Stones:
Based on the bestselling The Book of Stones: Who They Are and What They Teach, this guide describes dozens of new stones not covered in the original encyclopedia and also contains an index of the spiritual, emotional, and healing qualities of the stones. This pocket edition has been requested by many readers who are looking for a compact reference that they can carry easily or give as an inexpensive gift to the rock-lovers on their gift lists. Incorporating beautifully lit, full-color photos of each stone, it imparts the spiritual understanding that made The Book of Stones the “bible” of many thousands of crystal lovers.
This book is an ideal introduction to stones and their energies for those who are new to the field, as well as being an invaluable portable reference for well-versed readers. Every entry contains a vivid colour photo and quick-look list of key words, elemental and chakra correspondences, plus the beneficial physical, emotional, and spiritual qualities of each mineral, crystal, or gemstone. Below the quick-look list, Simmons provides a description of each stone, including scientific data and the story of each stone’s spiritual and healing qualities, as well as recommendations for other stones that combine harmoniously with it.
The scientific information offered welcomes those not yet familiar with crystal energies by providing a familiar frame of reference and also broadens the knowledge of those who come to stones primarily for spiritual purposes. The Pocket Book of Stones includes a comprehensive index of the healing qualities and the emotional and spiritual properties of all the stones in the book.
Shamarah’s experiences: This little charmer “The Pocket book of Stones” has taken pride of place for Graham at the markets. He finds it easy to find information to show customers more about the crystals. This new version has 40 more crystals.
I have enjoyed it as a secondary book to The Crystal Bible, as while it doesn’t have as much healing information, it does a great quick summary at the top of:
- The overall healing properties (like Gienger’s healing Crystals)
- What Chakras the crystal typically works with,
- And what Element that the crystal is – so you can check it is compatible with your Element of your Star Sign.
It gives you where the crystal is found, its geological and crystalline composition, and suggested other crystals to work with.
