Book Description

You don’t have to have extensive background in magic to make use of any stone. In fact, you don’t have to know about magic at all. If you are facing a difficult situation and feel you need protection and courage, wear garnets. Do you want to attract a lover? Use rose quartz or ruby. Are you troubled by negative vibrations? Wear, carry, or keep near you black onyx or obsidian.

Listing their physical properties and magical uses, CRYSTAL ENCHANTMENTS will help guide you in your choice of stones from Adularia to Zircon. This book will also appeal to those who simply love stones and want to know more about them.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and practical guide March 22, 2004
An excellent guide to the properties and use of crystals, written in simple clear language, so no esoteric knowledge is necessary to understand how to select and prepare the right crystals and how to benefit from them.
Part One (Gates Of Stone) discusses the archaeological processes in the formation of stones and gives a history of mankind's use of gems and crystals. It also gives directions for choosing and cleansing your stones.
Part Two (Stones And Their Powers) provides classifications of stones according to their degree of hardness and explains the carat weight, whilst also explaining the distinction between talismans and amulets.
The list of stones from A - Z makes up the main body of the book. Each stone is discussed by its hardness, color/s, sources, history and folklore, healing energies, magical powers and magical uses. This is very interesting and informative.
Part Three (Other Uses For Stone Magic) includes information on practical spell-magic with stones, sounds and crystals with the use of tuning forks, chakra alignment, stone pendulums and wands, changing the vibrations of your dwelling place, crystals and light, using crystals with star webs and mandalas, stone bead crafts, stone divination, scrying with stones and stone patterns for healing.
There are also tables of correspondence indicating the appropriate crystals for the seasons, for the zodiac, the birth month, weekdays, wedding anniversaries and one for angels, planets, days and seasons together. The book concludes with a list of other names for certain stones, a glossary of technical terms, an extensive bibliography and an index.
Although the book lacks illustrations or photographs, it is a valuable reference work and a very engaging read offering useful practical information. I also recommend The Crystal Bible by Judy Hall and Love Is In The Earth by Melody.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book... Full of information. April 6, 2000
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has a lot of very useful information about stones and their properties. It's easy to read and to understand. The only drawback is that there are no pictures of the stones. I'd definitely recommend purchasing this book, but maybe supplementing it with a book on how to identify the different stones.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great perspective May 2, 2006
Written in the simple and personal style for which Conway is known, this work carries on in the tradition of a more folklorical and Pagan perspective of working with minerals. This book helps integrate history, tradition, and the more New Agey perspective, and Conway also adds a bit of mineralogy to the mix.

This work largely addresses crystals for their healing and ritual/magickal connotations, and thus adds a facet that other comprehensive works leave out. This is a must-have for all crystal workers, especially those of a Pagan or Earth-based worldview.

5.0 out of 5 stars text, no images but still very interesting September 1, 2006
this book provides a lot of information about stones and crystals that is informative and written in a fashion that isn't dry. Not many pictures, but the book is super reference.

I have always enjoyed stone, used to work with a stone wheel shaping them.

Always felt such power from the different ones, almost as if they called to me, telling me what shape they wanted to me. So I appreciate knowing more about them and their properties.
