I bought this little pocket book for myself and my granddaughter. I've used Mr. Simmons' full-size books for years and was thrilled to find that he'd come out with this version so I could take it along with me. My granddaughter has a new-found delight in crystals and so it was perfect for her to start with. Of course, it doesn't have all the fine information as the larger volumes, but it's a great reference while treasure hunting!

This book is the perfect size - it would actually fit in a pocket yet it's full of useful information regarding various gemstones and crystals, and presents the material in a very clear manner. The photos are very true-to-life and look as natural gemstones would, so it makes identification very easy. My only reason for not giving it the full five stars is that the product description said the book was bound in a manner so as to lay flat, but the one I received is bound in the regular way, requiring at least one hand to hold it open. Content-wise, though, it's exactly what I wanted.

This is the best quick reference to stones I have found. It gives a quick reference to all the metaphysical properties as well as the scientific properties as well. This book will be a "keeper" for a very long time.

Handy to have with summarised information about each crystal. Have also got the large edition that is my bible as it has a lot of information to help with healing.

Format: Paperback
His info is accurate from my extensive playing . Though the index is a bit jumbled . There appears to have been a disgruntled proof reader .
I would be good if Simmo would put out an update AND put a chakra family tree with stones etc . This is what these books really need is a way to organise ones investigation and use of these stones , and index is cumbersome .Perhaps Isolate those stones which are very chakra specific and then suggest 2nd and 3rd order stones that also influence that chakra .Perhaps also male and female specific stones or feminine and masculine . Or perhaps he might put out a companion book called a little book of chakras that can integrate this book more effectively . After all when they all become paper , cross referencing would be a snap.
