My Favorite Crystal Books
There are now a large number of books about crystals selling, and many new ones are continuously being published.
But I truly have to say that my favorite of the crystal books I have read are those reviewed on my page on crystal books.
Some are very in-depth crystal reference books, and many are worth reading and owning as reference material.
I feel that any one of these books would benefit you when you have a specific question you need answered.
Melody wrote a number of books over many, many years including her enormous Crystal Encyclopedia, Love Is In The Earth.
Melody’s smaller books cover a lot of information, but the big encyclopedia covers so many crystals and stones that on its own is well-nigh a reference library.
Judy Hall has written many books and one of her latest books covers a very interesting topic.
In this book you can discover so much about many extraordinary places in the world that many powerful stones originate from.
