Book Review: Healing Crystals the A-Z Guide to 555 Gemstones by Michael Gienger

Healing Crystals is all about truth in advertising. It’s author, Michael Gienger, tells us that this is the A-Z guide to 555 gemstones, and that is exactly what he gives us. It measures 4 1/2″ by 6 1/2″. It is small but it is mighty for what it is.

It is 117 pages of crystals, giving their names, their mineralogical name, and the common name used, as well as a photo of each. This would be the one complaint; because the book is so small, the photos could be described as tiny.

It, also, lists the healing effects, if any, and the areas which the crystal will affect. It lists a spiritual aspect and a mental aspect, as well as a body aspect.

For each crystal, it will list if it is rare, commonly found and readily available.

This is what I would consider a “quick look” guide to crystals. It is small enough to carry with you to crystal shopping, however, for a more in-depth look at crystals, there are other books which give a more comprehensive discussion of the crystal in question.

But, it definitely delivers what it says it will; an A-Z guide to 555 gemstones.
