The Seven Archetypal Stones: Their Spiritual Powers and Teachings



As the daughter of a rockhound, and a mineral lover myself, I have quite a few books on crystals. What makes this book special is that it focuses specifically on seven minerals, Obsidian, Jade, Lapis Lazuli, Emerald, Amethyst, Quartz and Diamond. Published by Destiny , and written by Nicholas Pearson, this 293 page book offers an in depth exploration that includes each stones spiritual uses, history, lore, chemical make up and geology.

What is an archetype and how does it pertain to crystals? Pearson explains, “Archetypes serve as the original blueprints, the master molds, the perfected state for any concept. Crystal archetypes are the ideals that the stones themselves represent, either through human application or through an exploration of their structure and composition.” He goes on to explain, “When exploring the crystal archetypes, there are two main varieties. The explicate archetypes are those modeled after historical, evidence based examples of the use of a particular stone from culture to culture. The second variety of crystal archetypes is the implicate archetype. The message of these archetypes must be decoded through the layers of symbolism inherent in artifacts, morphology, composition, and myth.

Each chapter focuses on an individual mineral and offers a set of exercises or meditations that are designed to be simple, practical, effective and are meant to help you expand your work with crystals. Within these chapters is where you will see what sets this book apart from the normal crystal encyclopedia style books that the majority of us have. This is not to say that those books aren’t good because I have plenty of them on my shelves. The Seven Archetypal Stones is a book that explains and explores minerals in an innovative and fascinating way, giving you the tools to directly engage with their crystal energies.

Pearsons’ years of devotion and spiritual connection to these crystalline structures is clearly evident in his writing. Regardless of your level of experience working with stones or crystals this book helps deepen your relationship with them and is most definitely worth the read. I can tell you that I foresee myself re-reading and referring to this book often.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod as. It works well, but isn at as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface.
