Description

Crystals contain ancient power—and with the right knowledge, we can tap into it. The Encyclopedia of Crystals puts this information in your hands in the form of an illustrated compendium to all types of crystals.

Crystals aren't simply stones; when the right crystal is used appropriately, its power can physically heal, invigorate, cultivate love, and even boost creativity. In The Encyclopedia of Crystals, crystal expert Judy Hall draws on over 30 years' experience of working with crystals to provide the definitive reference.

Organized by crystal color for easy reference, The Encyclopedia of Crystals explains how the colors of crystals relate to the chakras, shows you how to cleanse and activate your crystals, and provides helpful, authoritative advice on healing, meditating, energizing, and more with nothing more than the power within your crystals.

In this lavishly illustrated encyclopedia, you will also find information on crystal history, geology, and chemistry, as well and newly discovered stones

This is an essential addition to the library of anyone who works with crystals.

Praise For Encyclopedia of Crystals, Revised and Expanded

Organized by crystal color, Hall?s (The Crystal Bible) comprehensive guide provides valuable information on nearly 1000 existing and newly discovered stones, their fluorescent properties, and their mineral content. In the instructive foreword, she describes the eight fundamental crystal structures, historical uses, and elemental formation. She also gives directions for activating crystals? cleansing and healing properties and discusses their relationship to chakras. Five hundred gorgeous, sensuously colored photographs accompany the entries. Because the book addresses subjects relevant to both scientific interest and alternative therapy, it is highly recommended for collections focusing on geology or holistic therapies.
