Our love affair with stones, and crystals, is deep and long abiding. We lust for them, we use them daily in our lives and often we turn to them for guidance and surcease.
Crystals have been used through the ages for all facets of life. In olden times, Britons wore agates to protect their skin. Frogs carved from amber were worn by the ancients for fertility. During the renaissance an amethyst was commonly engraved with a bear and worn as a protective amulet. Bloodstone was used in the distant past by Egyptians to break bonds and crumble stone walls. They used carnelian to dissipate hatred and ground malachite for eye shadow. Rubies were known as carbuncles in former times and were deemed the perfect gift for Buddha. Ground turquoise was used by the Navajo in sand paintings to attract rain. And the list goes on...

I recommend Powers Stones to everyone who owns a piece of jewelry or wants to offer such a thing as a gift to someone dear.
Either rough gemstones, or polished ones, or set in jewelry pieces, gemstones and crystals have been used for enhancing our lives in a variety of different ways since ancient times.
Mother Earth generously offers us a wide range of stones, crystals and semi-precious gemstones speaking to us through form and color and maintaining correspondence with the human body. Gone through a geologic process of heating, cooling and displacement on their way to their present form, the energy field of different gemstones is influenced by their geometrical form, color and subtle vibration. I learned, reading Power Stones, which each stone is made up of minute crystals which are in constant motion thus emitting an energy signature or frequency. The gemstone's color also plays a dynamic role in the stone's healing energy. The play of light and color can stimulate or calm; purify or heal.
Sandra Cox, the author, presents in her book how such stones can enhance our opportunities in choosing a career, in improving our health or the best ones for bringing prosperity, protection, love and tranquility.
A very practical book that gives good advice on how we can choose the best stone for us. I was actually impressed by how much useful information is squeezed in such a short book. Highly recommended.
