I have a fairly large library of books on crystals, vibrational healing and the like. I have Melody's "Love Is In The Earth," Diane Stein's two books on gemstones and others. But I have to say that Judy Hall and "The Crystal Bible" is one of the BEST books I have and one that I refer to on a regular basis. Her information is clear, beautifully presented and filled with insight. I definitely appreciate the true-to-life color photos of the stones that are featured in each chapter. Some books have photos that look nothing like the real thing! I feel when I read this book that I am getting a broad range of researched and cross referenced info that covers the spectrum from physical ailments to emotional and spiritual maladies. I especially like how she breaks down the info in each chapter and tells you exactly where the crystal is best placed upon the body for optimum benefit. I have recommended this book to many people. If I had to only own two books on crystal healing, I would choose this one and Melody's book. Outstanding! Well done! BUY THIS BOOK!

Format: Paperback
This comprehensive reference work covers all the well-known types of stone plus many obscure or recently discovered crystals. The convenient directory format makes it easy to find particular crystals or to identify unknown ones. The esoteric properties of the stones are described, with each stone's mental, spiritual, psychological, emotional and physical effects explained, as well as its application for healing purposes. The introduction provides interesting background information on how crystals are formed, advice on how to select and care for your crystals, how to use them for various purposes including healing and decoration, and the proper way of dedicating them. There is also a crystal meditation exercise. The book concludes with a glossary and index. The Crystal Bible is an impressive reference book with dazzling colour photographs.

Format: Paperback
I had high hopes for the book as it proclaimed itself "The Crystal Bible." One expects some accuracy with such a proclamation. However, I was a bit disconcerted when I got to the section on Chrysoberyl where I read that it is a form of Beryl. That is simply not true. Beryl is Beryllium Aluminum Silicate that forms in the hexagonal crystal structure. Chrysoberyl is an Oxide that forms in the Orthorhombic crystal structure. They are different minerals and different crystals.

Also, I think it should have been mentioned that some of the "new crystals" are really new marketing names for minerals that have long been known and actually have little value. "Azeztulite" is simply opaque white quartz. Angelite is simply blue anhydrite.

I can take no issue with the uses and attributes ascribed to the crystals because the author states on the last page that her knowledge of the crystals is mostly intuitive and is based on 30 years of experience. That much experience must have led her to a great understanding of the crystals and their powers.

I also found the photos to be excellent allowing the book to serve as a great visual reference.

I would hope that the next edition would have some of the factual information reviewed and corrected. This would make the book much more valuable as a reference.

I just started exploring the world of crystal healing, and this book has been AMAZINGLY helpful. Not only does it contain all of the information you would expect regarding properties of different types of crystals, but it also provides practical information on how to store, cleanse, and energize your crystals. So far, the other books on crystal healing that I have read take for granted that you will already know how to do these things. It has really been an invaluable resource to me as a beginner.

I love this book, the colored pictures on every page are wonderful and she tells you how to use each stone and where to place it. I almost didn't order it when it said above that it had 77 pages but it really has 377.

I'm going to be the one grouch! :)

I bought this book while I was on vacation this week and desperate for something to read, and I'm sorry I spent the $$ on it. Not only have I always loved and collected stones, I have an Earth Science degree specializing in Mineralology, Crystalography, and Paleontology. I have a very extensive library on stones, ranging from the complicated reference tomes to magical properties. I didn't care for the statements without explanations or the failure to include alternate names, and many of the properties just didn't jive with my personal experiences or what's "known". That's no big deal--each person can have a different experience with or reaction to a stone. What really turned me off from the book were the blatant errors in fact. Just one (1) mistake out of many was the statement that star sapphires have five points. The star in a sapphire (or other stones) is caused by very fine inclusions of fibers or needles crossing (asterism), and the points only occur in even numbers. There were numerous technical errors similar to that, which make me think it wasn't just a typo. The only decent thing about the book was some of the pictures, but you can get that in any good mineralology reference book, and those sometimes have good folklore info also. I can't give even the pictures a full thumbs-up because I'm suspicious of a few. There are MUCH better books out there. I was not impressed.
