There are many crystal books on the market and this is one of if not the most asked questions I get when I am doing a crystal workshop.
What book do you recommend? What book do you use? What book do you like? How do I find a good book on crystals? So here's the book everyone who has any interest in crystals needs to have on their shelf. It doesn't matter where you are at in your crystal knowledge or abilities, this is still a must have in my opinion.
This book isn't always the easiest to find. If you simply type in "crystal book" into Amazon, rarely does it come up. You won't find it at Barnes & Noble either. I've even checked almost every crystal store I've come across for it and rarely do I ever find it on their shelves.
I came across this book by asking a crystal intuitive, reiki master, crystal shop owner whom I felt an instant connection to what book she would recommend. She showed me her copy and I said I wanted one. They were out of stock and it would take a week to get more in and so I waited. The day they called me to let me know it was in, I went to get it. This was in Miami Florida and I didn't care what the traffic was like, I went for it.
The name of the book is The Essential Guide to Crystals, Minerals and Stones by Margaret Ann Lembo. Amazon of course has the best price but I encourage you, if you can to support a local owned store and buy it there. It has been a rather tricky book to find and I don't find it to often at the various crystal stores that I have visited in my year plus of travel but if you do happen to have the opportunity to support local, do so.
This book does not have every single kind of crystal in it but it has many of the most popular ones. What I love about this book is the layout of the pages. She gives you the information you seek in a very simple and straight-forward way. This is the book I use most and in fact I'm on my second copy because y first one was so used that I needed to get another.
I have several other books but this one is my first go to. Then I have my others by various authors as well but none do I go to as much as this one. I really like having multiple resources to turn to, to research and to learn from.
I hope this helps you on your journey.
All Love ~
