It’s no secret I love learning more about Crystal healing, and this book has an abundance of information. I would recommend this book to either beginners or experts on the subject. It is written in such a wonderful and easy to read way. I love how this book was broken into sections the way it was. There were sections on astrology, divination, and medicinal applications. There was a section explaining various characteristics of crystals and how certain ones were created. I loved learning about how certain crystals are simulated and some synthetic and how red flags for spotting fakes were mentioned. The section on buying and preparing your sones was extremely informative. I especially enjoyed the section that included the overview of certain crystals’ magical uses. I can’t wait to get the finished copy of this book, where all the artwork and colored photos are going to be included. This author is extremely knowledgeable on this subject and it shows through her writing.
