Virtually everyone I meet at least knows someone who is 'into' crystals. Seeing the gentle and persistent 3way this consciousness has spread through the world gives me a great deal of hope... There are seventy-six stones in this edition taht were not in the prior one... This whole book is an invitation. It is a call to continue, or begin, your spiritual journey with the stones. They are present and available, each singing with its own voice, and through them all the voice of the Earth vibrates softly in our hearts. When we listen, when we answer, the dance begins.   —Robert Simmons

"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 Hartman, author of The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight
