This collection is actually two books in one. Both authors provide an exhaustive and comprehensive study of the lore and science of precious and semi-precious stones and crystals.

Precious stones have long commanded the attention of thinkers, artists, mystics, magicians, astrologers, alchemists, and all who appreciate beauty. Intimately and mysteriously formed in the fires of Earth’s inner essence, what is the meaning of these exquisitely shaped and colored treasures, the sacred bounty of Nature?

Isidore Kozminsky’s classic study, The Magic and Science of Jewels and Stones, was first published in 1922. This greatly expanded edition will serve as an invaluable resource to anyone seeking knowledge of the spiritual and mythic properties of the mineral world. Kozminsky explores the use of precious and semiprecious stones in fields as far flung as healing and design, practical esoteric energy channeling and decoration, as well as in powerful magical talismans by which specific energies may be invoked, and as artistic objects of great beauty.

Crystals and the New Age by Stuart Weinberg, a noted expert on crystals and gemstones, and the owner of Seven Stars bookstore, calls on the knowledge gained through his years of buying and selling crystals in the New Age market. Weinberg examines the many ways in which gemstones have become a powerful factor in the contemporary spiritual movement. He offers biographies of those legitimate channels whose work has shaped the New Age. Inspiring mythic tales are balanced with practical instructions and knowledge about the astrological sympathies of crystals, as well as the energy work and healing properties associated with all the major categories of precious stones. This fascinating and multifaceted work will prove as valuable to the expert as to the novice. Crystals have commanded the attention of thinkers, artists, mystics, magicians, astrologers, alchemists, and all who appreciate beauty. Intimately and mysteriously formed in the fires of Earth’s inner essence, what is the meaning of these exquisitely shaped and colored gifts of the sacred bounty of Nature.
