To assume that the same medicine will work on everything that can be labeled as 'human' is a mistake in all areas. We all have so many different energetic configurations that I feel what works for some does not for others.
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.

I have several books on metaphysical properties of stones and crystals, but what I like about Michael's Gemstone Dictionary is the way the properties are grouped by what they help with. For instance; if you are wanting to find a stone or crystal to help with healing a body part, you would look to the chapter on the Physical Body. Here you would find ALL of the stones available for you to choose from in one place. You wouldn't have to know the properties of any one particular stone, the information is in on place. It's very easy to use even for a beginner. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for metaphysical properties of stones and crystals.

This is a little gemstone dictionary that gives properties of stones based on the Michael Teaching. It is specific to the Michael Teaching, and based on that, pretty fun to use. If you aren't a "Michael Student" then many of the definitions won't make sense.
It doesn't list all the available gemstones, but gets to most of them. An update would be nice.

I have worked with gems and minerals for over 20 years. This book is about as spot as any book out there. Very useful. One has to remember however that there is more than one reality rocks and stones work through. In some realities they will do one thing in another they may do something else. Stones can be a great ally if treated with respect. Get this book it has been out a very long time but it is one of the best I have found when it comes to doing what is indicated in the book. Look to shamantic work as well to get a better understanding to the limitless capabilities of rocks and stones and communicating with the minerals.

This is one of the best book on the metaphysical properties of minerals I've come across in a while. How they reached there conclusions is "different", but in comparison to others, the information holds up to what I've researched very well. A lot less B.S. than the rest.
