Overview

Legendary healer Diane Stein shares her extensive knowledge of gemstones in this concise agate-to-zircon reference. Each listing includes the stone's common name, its corresponding color and chakra, and a concise resume of its healing properties. Stein suggests ways to use stones to support physical and psychic well-being, by simply carrying one in a hand or pocket, wearing it as jewelry, or engaging in more advanced practices like the "laying on of stones." She also presents a glossary of terms designed for beginning students of metaphysical healing practices, and teaches how to clear, dedicate, and maintain crystals to maximize their beneficial effects.

  • A quick reference to 550 gemstones and crystals (including many that are new to the marketplace), and their special healing properties and most helpful applications.
  • Includes diagrams of the Kundalini (physical) and Hara Line (emotional) chakra healing systems for simplified cross-referencing with the stones.
  • Diane Stein's books have sold more than half a million copies and are available in six languages.

     THE AUTHOR SCOOP

    Read any good books lately?My favorite reading is science fiction, there are new good books coming out every day.  Look at Sharon Shinn, Tamora Pierce, Ann Bishop, and so many more talented women fiction writers.If you had to boil your book's message down to one sentence, what would it be?Serve the Light, trust the Light, make a difference in the world with who you are and what you do.

    What are you working on now?I prefer to keep future books a secret until they are finished.  No one will know until the manuscript is mailed in.Do you eat your vegetables?I have been a vegetarian since 1983.  I do eat my vegetables.If you had a superpower, what would it be?Wonder Woman, of course.How long did it take you to write this book?  I have been working with herbs for over 35 years, so you could say it took that long to write it.

    This book goes through quite a few stones, each labeled by chakra and color. Uses are given for each in short paragraph style. There are a few color plates. I think this could be improved with even black and white drawings of the typical crystal shape. Generally useful for those who use crystals and stones in their workings.
