    Informative & Descriptive

    I love my Crystal Bible but, it's not the best if you are just entering the world of crystals & healing. If you have no clue what a crystal is that you you have in hand, it'll be hard to figure out what it is with this book. I am a strong believer in multiple sources. So I use my crystal bible in conjunction with several other books. The Encyclopedia of Crystals & the Crystal Therapy.

    Handy to have around

    Many crystal books are titled as encyclopedia or some other broad ranging term that means all encompassing. However, The Crystal Bible, volumes one and two actually seem to cover 99% of existing and used healing crystals. It is absolutely wonderful to have as a reference, especially for beginners. With great descriptions and a variety of pictures, it is spot on for those who learn by seeing or by reading. Volume one and two are the only crystal reference books I recommend to anyone doing crystal healing. Other books are great when learning how to heal, but none go as in depth about the various forms and types of crystals. A must have for beginners and seasoned healers alike.

    Personally I prefer Crystal Guide Pocket Edition which I have on

    Personally I prefer Crystal Guide Pocket Edition which I have on Android. I find the Crystal Bible to be quite lacking in geological data and it seems to use a lot of unrecognised alternative names for the crystals - why when there are established/approved names?¿

    Check on other Crystal resources before you decide to buy this.

    O.K., but not what I expected.

    Second copy for gift

    I found this book, The Crystal Bible, so helpful and informative in my quest for stones to work with in healing and meditation that I bought a copy of it for my stepdaughter on her birthday. Its size is small enough to slip into a tote to take to the gem and mineral shows for a quick peak. Amazing - a very handy reference - a lot of information in a very compact book.

    I love this book

    I have owned a copy for several years. Bought one for a friend as a gift along with a couple of crystals to get her started.

    Don't pass this one up!!

    My daughter and I read through the book, not only did we find it helpful, but really educational. She and I love to collect crystals, and different rocks, this helped us to sort through them properly. Also what we thought we knew about different crystals, there was so much more to learn.

    Incredible

    As soon as I found this book, I exitedly read through the pages, and just as exitedly bought it. It is without doubt the best reference to crystals I have ever laid eyes on. Fully colored pictures of all the stones make this book very eye apealing, and full easy to understand details make it a quick refernce. If you do not understand some wording, there is a glossary to figure out what the words mean. I Doubt ill have to buy another crystal book for a very long time.

    One of the best!!!

    I have used this book to teach classes on crystals and gemstones. The illustrations are fantastic, what you need sometimes to identify a gemstone. This is my first pick for a book to know what you are looking at, and why.

    Excellent Resource!

    I have been working with crystals for quite a while now (over 10 years). So, I have accumulated quite a few books on the subject of crystals. I must say that this is one of the best reference books I have come across. I haven't purchased a crystal book in quite a long time, because there were no good new books. But, then I ordered this one and was pleasantly surprised. Very good pictures and good, basic information. Highly recommended for anyone trying to learn more about the properties of various crystals.

    The only Crystal Book you will ever need!

    I have many crystal books and, this one is by far the best. It shows pictures of the crystals ,gives a reason to use each stone. And in the back of the book, it shows what ones you can use to make elixers.

    Great Reference Book

    I LOVE this book. It lists hundreds of crystals and gemstones, with pictures of all of them, so you're able to identify them. It gives you the spiritual and medical uses for the crystals, crystal meditations, tells you the uses for different crystal shapes, etc...It's the only crystal book I have and the only one I'll ever need. It covers alot more than any other book I've ever seen. You must buy it!!!!
