Gemstones A To Z: A Handy Reference to Healing Crystals

by Diane Stein —

Stein shares her extensive knowledge of gemstones in this concise agate-to-zircon reference book that includes 550 gemstones and crystals (including many that are new to the marketplace), and their special healing properties and most helpful applications.

Each listing includes the stone’s common name, its corresponding color and chakra, and a concise resumé of its healing properties. She 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.”

The book 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.

It also includes diagrams of the Kundalini (physical) and Hara Line (emotional) chakra healing systems for simplified cross-referencing with the stones.
