Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

The Book of Stones is filled with information and with beauty!”
—Melody, author of Love Is in the Earth

“Each description is an intimate conversation between the Wisdom of the Stones and the deep soul Wisdom of thee two authors.”
—Robert Sardello, PhD, author of Love and the World and Silence

“This beautiful and unusual work opened a new and unknown world to me, right under my feet—a realm of qualities and possibilities of which I had known nothing and for which I am the richer.”
—Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of The Crack in the Cosmic Egg, The Biology of Transcendence, and The Death of Religion and the Rebirth of the Spirit

The Book of Stones has elevated the spiritual knowledge of crystals into a higher form. The classification of each stone is impeccable, along with wonderful photos—creating an intimate connection with a wide variety of minerals. This book offers us all an opportunity to sharpen our skills and renew our interest in the crystal healing world.”
—JaneAnn Dow, author of Crystal Journey: Travel Guide for the New Shaman

“Quite easily the most comprehensively written and beautifully photographed book on the subject that I’ve come across. If you own only one reference book on stones and crystals, make sure that this gem is the one.”
—Dr. Eric Pearl, author or the international bestseller The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself

“The Book of Stones takes the reader on a fascinating journey. The writing is clear, thoughtful, and easily understood, and the inclusion of scientific data, history, and folklore helps make the book a valuable resource for all those interested in the mineral kingdom.”
—Thom Hartmann, author of The Prophet’s Way and The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight

"The Book of of Stones: Who They Are and What They Teach by Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian explains the physical and metaphysical properties of crystals, minerals and gemstones."
Publishers Weekly

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Book of Stones is a new edition of the best-selling guide to some of Earth’s most beautiful natural objects. Two introductory chapters detail the authors’ theories about how to work with crystals and stones—including the concept of crystal resonance and the scientific observation that living organisms (such as ourselves) are liquid crystalline structures. An illuminating alphabetical journey through the mineral kingdom, stone by stone, follows.

Each entry begins with the stone name and photo, plus its elemental and chakra correspondences, as well as keywords that indicate its properties. Next comes a description of the crystal structure, hardness, history, and known locations of each mineral, plus any relevant legend or lore from the past. Each author then offers an essay on the subtle energy properties and spiritual applications of the stone. The entries conclude with summaries of the spiritual, emotional, and physical healing qualities of the stone, and an affirmation for evoking its potential benefits. The book’s presentation is straightforward enough to make it an excellent introduction for beginners, yet the level of detail and the depth of research make it an invaluable resource for the most experienced stone practitioners.

Not what it seems 21 décembre 2007
Par A Reader - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Before you buy this book, do yourself a favor and have a look at the product catalog of the authors' crystal business, called Heaven & Earth. I was impressed with this book at first, but then I began to notice how many of the crystals are trademarked. Trademarked crystals seemed a little odd to me, and I can give them the benefit of the doubt if there are one or two, but apparently the authors are "discovering" these new crystals all the time. Keep reading the catalog and you'll find that a lot of these "new" (and as it happens, invariably rare and sold by the gram) crystals are regular, not so uncommon crystals with fancy trademarked names, some other variation of a manmade coating on an existing crystal, or even just glass. Have a good look at the catalog, because the purpose of this book is to convince you that you need the stuff in that catalog.

Don't get me wrong; I believe in crystal healing and that's probably why this systematic exploitation of crystals and the people eager to learn about them makes me feel ill.

I gave this book 2 stars because the photography is lovely and it makes a good doorstop. Please look for another book to buy, though.

trademarking of stones 28 septembre 2010
Par Anne - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I got this book because it was recommended to me by several friends and it is indeed a beautiful and informative book. However, I am totally disheartened and aggravated by the fact that Robert Simmons is trademarking stones. Is nothing sacred? For some reason, Monsanto comes to mind, and leaves me distrustful of his recommendations.

Very beautifully done 20 juin 2006
Par Nicholas Pearson - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Rob Simmons certainly knew what he was doing when putting this one together. I love Naisha's entries, and Hazel Raven is a very well respected healer in the UK. Simmons also knows his stuff, and has compiled a convenient guide with photographs for each entry. Many stones included are exclusive to Heaven and Earth (The publisher/distributor of the book) and many have names that are unique to Heaven and Earth (mostly a marketing ploy...)

The book is full of mineralogical data, photographs, diverse views, stones to use in combinations, and affirmations. I reccomend this to people that are moving away from the writing styles of the early writers and those like Melody; although they are wonderful, they may seem to esoteric or too impersonal. This book is very personal, although it does sensationalise a bit.

Sound and Thorough Resource 14 avril 2007
Par Stacey Couch - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
If you already do or are considering working with stones this book is a great resource. Lovely photos, great basic information, and the complimenting input from a male and female perspective is very useful. Their reads on the stones are right on. The only downfall is that there is no index in the back to cross reference the names of stones with. You either have to know the stone by the name they use (some stones have many) or match the photo up to a stone you have. With an index this book would be perfect. I also hope they release an expanded edition at some point because there are a few stones not represented that I would like to see.

Highest rating in my library 26 octobre 2006
Par Sonya M. Baity - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have many books on various metaphysical topics, including crystals. The Book of Stones is probably my favorite from my collection. It includes 2 objective resources for each stone, ways to use them, what stones they work well with, their structure, hardness and sources, and most importantly, pictures. I have too many books that don't have pictures, or they only have one and it is probably the least available form of the stone. I would also recommend Heal Yourself with Crystals by Hazel Raven as a complement to this book. It is not as detailed, nor does it include such a great multitude of stones, but it does explain layouts and combinations to use for specific dis-eases, such as headaches, insomnia, cellulite...
