The piece shown on the cover is definitely fun and was the reason I decided to order the book. The other pieces in the book are photographed nicely and the directions are clear, and even though they are nice to look at and may be appealing to others, I didn't find them particularly inspiring. As for the information on the healing properties of the different stones, that is up for debate. I have seen many sites and books that cover this subject and no two are alike. If you think of a certain healing property when you see or wear a particular stone and it helps you concentrate on those properties, it's all to the good. Overall, the book is nicely done but just didn't suit my purposes.
