This edition of The Pocket Book of Stones, featuring a handy lay-flat binding, was created in response to demand from readers for a more portable metaphysical crystals guide than the author's Book of Stones. It is an ideal introduction to stones and their energies for those who are new to the field, as well as being an invaluable reference for well-versed readers. Every entry contains a vivid color photo and quick-look list of keywords, elemental and chakra correspondences, plus the beneficial physical, emotional, and spiritual qualities of each mineral, crystal, or gemstone. Author Simmons also provides a description of each stone, including scientific data and the story of each stone's spiritual and healing qualities, as well as recommendations for other stones that combine harmoniously with it. The scientific information offered welcomes those not yet familiar with crystal energies by providing a familiar frame of reference and also broadens the knowledge of those who come to stones primarily for spiritual purposes. A comprehensive index cites the healing qualities and emotional and spiritual qualities of all the stones in the book. This affordably priced edition makes an ideal gift for any rock-lover. “There is no one any better, any deeper, and more knowledgeable, and more heart-filled with the Wisdom of Stones than Robert Simmons.”—Robert Sardello, PhD, author of Love and the Soul.
