I had tried other rock and mineral books by Scott Cunningham and others and found that the usages offered simply did not work for me. Does this mean I should "laugh my way" through a Scott Cunningham book? Only if I'm shortsighted about the diverse energetic nuances of the human race. Cunningham's writings have sold so widely they must be useful to many, if not to me.
I feel the same thing applies to Michael's Gemstone Dictionary. I have had so much intense, noteworthy energetic success using lapidary specimens according to the suggestions in this book.
The book is well organized, well written, and covers most rocks I've ever wanted to investigate. An updated version including the few rocks it didn't cover would be icing on the cake. I do find that the physical descriptions offered don't always cover ALL the various forms of a specimen. Which is almost no big deal, since the book shouldn't be used to identify unknown specimens anyway.
I have found that certain listings are of no use, such as:
Ammonite: (Fossilized Shells). Same in effect as shell.
(so we go to "shell")
Shell: Similar in effect to Bone and Ivory. See types by name such as Mother of Pearl, Cameo Shell, or Clam Shell.
Although certain entries like Ammonite may as well have been left out, the book is pretty extensive and sensitive nevertheless with properties for so many rocks.
Shattuckite: (Blue in color). a). Puts one in touch with the different facets of one's higher self.Read more ›
It doesn't list all the available gemstones, but gets to most of them. An update would be nice.
