Book Review

Stones of the Goddess

Crystals for the Divine Feminine

by Nicholas Pearson

Author, Nicholas Pearson’s book offers a jam-packed volume of wisdom about crystal lore and usage through the lens of Goddess study and devotion. Looking at the Notes (Bibliography) section at the back of the book confirms the extensive research and credible resources used in compiling this book and providing relevant and cohesive information.

Mr. Pearson states in the Introduction…

“ The inspiration behind Stones of the Goddess began with my desire to deepen my connection to the tides of life, magick, and mystery that keep the cosmos in order.”

I would echo that by saying that this book will most definitely achieve that and inform about the crystal kingdom as well. The interweaving of the sacred Feminine and the Sacred Earth domain are beautifully represented in a way that is both user friendly and clear in its intention.

Part One begins with the basics of crystals, their use and the more commonly selected ones. Everything is covered from soup to nuts; cleansing, storing, selecting and attuning and programming to name a few. This serves as an excellent primer for anyone who wishes to use crystals in a more specific way. This section is filled with photos, which is a great way of use for identification of crystals and building your own visual crystal encyclopedia.

Part Two, entitled Meeting the Goddess, moves into the stories and energies of the Goddess and application of Goddess energy. The myths and worship within a matriarchal society are brought to life and the resurgence of the Divine Feminine in all of Her forms completes the first stirrings of connection to what is ancient and organic in nature.

Part Three, Crystals for the Divine Feminine, brings the information of crystal use and the Herstory of the Goddess together seamlessly as a variety of stones are presented. From the start, the Compendium of Crystals takes a look at crystals bringing multiple correspondences into play; magickal uses, the astrological signature, element, Goddess archetype and formation process. The description of each crystal is complete and diverse in its presentation.

Completing the book, the Table of provides even more info for a quick selection list broken down into Goddess-Elemental-Planetary and Zodiacal.All of your favorites are there, as well as some less common crystals that deserve a closer look.

My only negative note about this title is that it won’t be released until February 19.2019. Have mine on pre-order and can’t wait!
