Stones of the New Consciousness begins with a new approach to meditation with stones, and to the possibility of conscious relationship with the spiritual beings who express themselves in our world as crystals and minerals. This beautifully designed book examines the most important stones that help accelerate and enhance human evolution. Each entry is illustrated with color photos of exceptional examples. The stones include Moldavite, the extraterrestrial amorphous crystal; Nuummite, the oldest gemstone on Earth; and Circle Stones, the highly energetic Flint found in crop circle formations. Other featured rarities include Nirvana Quartz from the Himalayas and high-vibrational Natrolite from the emerald mines of Russia.
Author Robert Simmons includes historical and mythological references for each stone, positing that the fabled Stone of the Holy Grail and the Philosopher’s Stone of the alchemists may have physical counterparts among the materials discussed. Simmons presents practices for deepening one’s awareness of the stones’ gifts—from expanding one’s consciousness, to healing, to fulfilling one’s personal and collective destiny. While emphasizing direct contact with stones, the book also explores crystal energy tools, energy environments, and applications such as stone elixirs and essences that can aid anyone on a spiritual path.

I read and loved The Book of Stones, which is the best crystal book ever written, until this one! In Stones of the New Consciousness Robert Simmons takes us deeper into the realms of "Stone Beings" and teaches us how to relate to the stones in new ways and shows us how to co-create with the Soul of the World to help us and the Earth evolve. The first half of the book has several chapters exploring crystal meditations, the Liquid Crystal Body Matrix, Crystal tools, grids and healing/meditation environments, and lots of amazing new ideas. The second half 62 stones are met in new meditative ways by the author and the stones reveal themselves to us in their own voices. This is a must have book!!
A beautifully written book that surpasses all other crystal books. A ton of information! Highly recommended!
