Generally I like to start out with a disclaimer. I am an contemporary witch.  I look for the connection between magic and science without the need to search for a creator. I receive no compensation for these reviews and all my links are standard Amazon links and not affiliate links. I am a practicing photo reader and have spent the last 16 years honing my craft.  I offer personal readings by request and have a strong online history that boasts nearly 400,000 views.

As with all my reviews I'm starting with a review of the physical book.  It's a great size book to toss in a bag to read on the go.  The hardcover is fantastic for protecting the pages and the cover is made well.  The index is quite thorough which I like to see in this type of book.  I will see that on several of the crystals not all correspondences are listed. While there are references to Inanna and Dionysus; Hecate was not mentioned.

The photos of the crystals are large and full color and the book has several tables that show their properties and place of origin. There are several chapters dedicated to the location of each and gives a brief history of the area and the crystals as well as their modern counterparts.  Chapter 8 provides a list of the crystals of the zodiac with a brief nod to each sign and how the crystal embodies the characteristics of the sign.

Overall this is a great book for the beginner and the seasoned witch alike. It offers a great deal of historic information as well as the basics you're looking for in a crystal handbook.  I highly recommend this book.
