• Details each stone’s astrological and elemental correspondences, Goddess archetypes, healing properties, magickal uses, and aspects of the Divine Feminine it embodies

Part of Mother Earth, crystals and gemstones are intimate pieces of the body of the Goddess, sacred tools that can help us tap into Her energy for healing, magick, and spiritual growth.

In this practical guide to working with the stones of the Goddess, Nicholas Pearson explores more than 100 gemstones and crystals strongly connected with the energies of the Divine Feminine, including old favorites like amazonite, amethyst, geodes, and carnelian (also known as the blood of Isis), alongside newer and more unusual stones such as sakura ishi, yeh ming zhu, and Lemurian seed crystals. He details each stone’s spiritual and healing properties, astrological and elemental correspondences, Goddess archetypes and lore, magickal uses, and the aspects of the Divine Feminine it embodies. Providing an overview of major Goddesses from around the world, he reveals how Goddess traditions and myths have incorporated stones throughout history.

Guiding you through the basics of crystal work, including cleansing and programming, the author offers step-by-step instructions for Goddess-centered magickal rituals, guided meditations to connect with the Divine Feminine, and the use of crystals for spellcasting. He explains how to create crystal grids, including the Triple Goddess Grid and the Venus Grid; crystal elixirs, such as Aphrodite Elixir and Yemayá Essence; and crystal charm bags for purification, wealth, and a happy home.

With the rebirth of the Goddess now happening after millennia of suppression, Pearson shows how, by working with gemstones and crystals, you can help restore the radiant light and limitless magick of the Divine Feminine and move humanity toward collective growth and healing. The stones of the Goddess are here to support us through practical means as well as serve as anchors for the return of the Goddess’s presence.

Praise For Stones of the Goddess: Crystals for the Divine Feminine

“What an exquisite and valuable book! Nicholas Pearson’s Stones of the Goddess is packed with goddess lore as well as some extremely practical information for using a vast variety of crystals and gemstones. Although much of the material in this book is highly sophisticated, it also contains some of the clearest, most lucid instructions for actually working with crystals that I have ever read. Highly recommended!”
— Judika Illes, author of Encyclopedia of Spirits and Encyclopedia of 5,000 Spells

“. . . a peerless authority when it comes to the knowledge of crystals, stones, gemstones, and minerals--Pearson’s expertise bridges geology, metaphysics, mythology, and occultism. Stones of the Goddess is a considerable contribution to the occult, metaphysical, pagan, goddess-worshipper, and witchcraft communities. Pearson understands the geological reasons why stones have the energies they do and how they can assist us. This book is sure to deepen your relationship with the world of rocks, goddesses, healing, and magick and is a book that every practicing witch and magician should have in their library.”
— Mat Auryn, author of Psychic Witch

“An essential read for any goddess who feels called to work with Mother Nature’s crystals and who is exploring her Divine Feminine.”
— Emma Mildon, author of Evolution of Goddess

“Pearson has done it again! Stones of the Goddess is instantly informative and deeply entrancing. By combining a detailed knowledge of crystals with a respectful approach to the Divine Feminine, he has created what is destined to become a lasting, indispensable handbook for anyone interested in magick, meditation, crystals, mythology, astrology, and--most importantly--finding and understanding the Goddess. Beautifully illustrated and with equally beautiful prose, this book is at once a manual of crystals and a crystal grimoire; perfect for novice and expert alike.”
— Lawren Leo, author of Dragonflame

“This book provides glimpses into the many roles of the Goddess through history and mythology in a compendium of stones described using mineral science and practical instructions as well as their links to the Female Divine. The mineral kingdom is here to support us during these times of transition and transformation, and this book fulfills its promise! I recommend it highly!”
— Robert Hieronimus, Ph.D., coauthor of The Secret Life of Lady Liberty

“This book is an important bridge between the new consciousness and the old ways. Mystery traditions around the world have always known that the Great Mother speaks to us through her stones, caves, and wild places of the Earth. This book is the perfect resource to help us all listen.”
— David Salisbury, author of Witchcraft Activism

“The Goddess and her stones has been a subject always close to my heart, all my life and especially when I began exploring the crystal kingdom more than thirty years ago. So you can imagine how excited and intrigued I was when Nicholas Pearson asked me to review his latest book. After reading it from cover to cover I was not disappointed. Stones of the Goddess is perfect for this unique time in our collective evolution. I highly recommend it.”
— Hazel Raven, author of The Angel Bible and Crystal Healing

“Connecting to the Divine Feminine through stones is a sacred connection to Mother Earth, where the mineral kingdom thrives, and Stones of the Goddess is a magickal treasure itself. From meeting the Goddess to the Goddess stones themselves, this is a wonderfully comprehensive, beautifully illustrated divine gem that should be on everyone’s bookshelf.”
— Marla Brooks, author of The Witch’s Oracle

“Pearson boldly stands on the shoulders of the unlikely pairings of the likes of Robert Graves and Scott Cunningham, Carl Jung and Melody and has crafted a paean to Gaia which will ring true to the many who will use her stones in a radically new fashion for age-old purposes.”
— Domenic Leo, Ph.D., art historian, independent scholar, and author

"In this book, he introduces readers to the Goddess while, at the same time, giving them practical information for creating a crystal toolbox for working with stones."
— Retailing Insight, Anna Jedrziewski
