There are countless books on healing crystals, how to use them, and other healing guides. Here are some that we recommend. Please Note: These books are not substitutes for any professional psychological or medical care.
Books on Crystals
- The Crystal Bible: Volume 1 by Judy Hall
A great book for beginners. Hall gives an overview of crystal background and formation and then provides beautiful images of hundreds of crystals and explains their properties and what they are used for.
- Crystal Healing by Judy Hall
This book gives an in depth analysis of a few specific crystals. Hall focuses on seven stones that are attuned to the seven chakras, and five stones that are “master healers.”
- The Crystal Companion by Judy Hall
In this book, Hall focuses specifically on how certain crystals can enhance your life. She explores crystals for the body, heart, mind, spirit, and more.
- The Encyclopedia of Crystals by Judy Hall
In this encyclopedia, Hall (can you tell she’s one of our favorites?) explores hundreds of crystals. She provides information not only on their chemistry and make-up, but also their metaphysical properties and how they can help your body and spirit.
- The Book of Stones, Revised Edition: Who They Are and What They Teach by Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian
This is one of the definitive and most in-depth texts on crystals. Simmons and Ahsian explore hundreds of stones and give extensive explanations on their properties and uses.
Books on Rituals
- Crystal Muse by Heather Askinosie and Timmi Jandro
This book, written by the founders of Energy Muse, details the healing journey of the authors, while providing instructions and tips on how to complete rituals to “tune in to the real you.”
- Everyday Crystal Rituals by Naha Armády
In this book, Armády introduces and explains healing rituals for love, wealth, career, and home. This is a good book for someone with a little bit of crystal background who is ready to begin their healing journey.
Books on Chakras
Chakras and Self-Care by Ambi Kavanagh
In this book, Kavanagh provides a user-friendly guide to your chakras and she gives simple everyday rituals for self-care and healing your chakras.
The Ultimate Guide to Chakras by Athena Perrakis
This book is a great introduction to balancing and healing your chakras. Perrakis gives explanations of the seven main chakras, as well as the earth star and soul star chakras. She also provides instructions for rituals that will aid in healing your chakras.
Other books on crystals that I love and have in my collection:
This is a small book that fits in a purse or bag. This is great for when you are going to a store to look for crystals.
- Love is in the Earth: A Kaleidoscope of Crystals - The Reference Book Describing the Metaphysical Properties of the Mineral Kingdom by Melody
- Love Is in the Earth - the Crystal and Mineral Encyclopedia - the LIITE Fantastic and the Last Testament: The Encyclopedia Describing the Metaphysical and Mineralogical Properties of the Mineral Kingdom by Melody
This is a very large book that we would suggest as a reference tool. However, there are no pictures of the stones.
Books on Herbology and Essential Oils
