I’ve been fascinated by crystals for a while now and while I have learned some things, it is nice to have everything compiled into one big handy book at my fingertips. Now I know how to properly use the crystals I already own and what new ones I want to buy! Thank you!

Thank you NetGalley for the eARC of this book for an honest review!

This was a great beginner guide to a large variety of crystals, very handy to have in one's library. The images were drawings and not actual pictures of the crystals, but they were well done in my opinon.

I LOVE books about crystals and this seems like a book right up my alley. I love the illustrations of the crystals, the design of the book, and the detail information about the crystals. It answers a lot of questions that other crystal books don't. Will definitely buy it for my book shelf.

Practical Crystals is an absolute gem of a book! *Pun not intended*.
It's a comprehensive guide that not only reveals the best crystals for various purposes but also delves into the reasons behind their efficacy. I love how the book empowers readers to enhance their well-being using crystals, backed by solid explanations of their properties. Whether you're a newbie or a seasoned crystal enthusiast, this book offers valuable insights and practical advice to incorporate the magic of crystals into your daily routine. I will be purchasing this book to refer back to as my go-to resource for harnessing the power of crystals and nurturing my mind and body.

The only thing that would make this book better is if they had photos of the crystals rather than illustrations but it's easy enough to Google so therefore does not affect my 5 star rating!

This book is so easy to understand and it is well explained. It is a practical guide to know which crystals fit best for every situation that we can struggle in our daily life. Divided by 'topics' with a little explanation of the crystals that we can use.

I have seen many crystal books and guides for crystal users because I am a huge crystal fan! This one is really pretty, but also gave some great information that helped it feel much more “new” than the average guide! I’d definitely suggest this one for crystal lovers and newbies alike!

Wonderful Information

This book is very well written, outlining and discussing many aspects of purchasing, owning, cleansing, using crystals, and so much more.

The author describes several ways one may use to aid in selecting crystals: to include using your intuition, your senses, using a pendulum, and just doing some basic research. After choosing and cleansing your crystals, she discusses programming and charging your crystals.

The most important part to me is the information provided on the crystals, their types, uses, meaning, how they’re grouped, and many other facets of crystal uses; such as chakra work, use in working with moon phases, and much much more.

This is a book with a great wealth of information, no just for beginners, but is a good reference source for anyone. I highly recommend this book.

I like to think of myself as a crystal enthusiast, though I always start with that 'beginner's wonder' mindset so I can always keep learning about them. This book hit all the right notes.

What's neat about it is that it's a perfect fit, whether you're just dipping your toes into the world of crystals or you've got tons of experience.

I love how it helps you choose the perfect crystal for specific themes or purposes. It's like having an encyclopedia of crystal knowledge right at your fingertip. It describes the unique qualities of each crystal and how to harness their powers for the various themes throughout the book.

I also loved the author's personal touch. You can feel her passion for crystals jumping off the pages, like she’s there with you, sharing her crystal wisdom and excitement.

So, whether you're just starting your crystal adventure or you're already knee-deep in amethysts and quartz, this book is a solid companion that strikes that sweet spot between friendly guidance and serious crystal know-how. I highly recommend this short but very powerful book on crystals.
