Gemstones A to Z

A Handy Reference to Healing Crystals



Legendary healer Diane Stein shares her extensive knowledge of gemstones in this concise agate-to-zircon reference. Each listing includes the stone's common name, its corresponding color and chakra, and a concise resume of its healing properties. Stein suggests ways to use stones to support physical and psychic well-being, by simply carrying one in a hand or pocket, wearing it as jewelry, or engaging in more advanced practices like the "laying on of stones." She also presents a glossary of terms designed for beginning students of metaphysical healing practices, and teaches how to clear, dedicate, and maintain crystals to maximize their beneficial effects.

A quick reference to 550 gemstones and crystals (including many that are new to the marketplace), and their special healing properties and most helpful applications. Includes diagrams of the Kundalini (physical) and Hara Line (emotional) chakra healing systems for simplified cross-referencing with the stones. Diane Stein's books have sold more than half a million copies and are available in six languages.
