Have you noticed that crystals are having a bit of shall we say a ‘resurgence’ in the social media and …. Not that they need a resurgence of any kind because those that know of them and use them have never strayed too far from their stones.

There are crystal books and then there are crystal books. This is one of those crystal books that everybody should have a look at because it makes understanding crystals so easy. I have a couple  crystal books and I’m sure that if I’d ever managed to make my way all the way through them, I’d have a Phd in Gemstones by now, so although they are great reference books they do make understanding crystals into rocket science. This book however is great for the novice as an introduction but it’s also good for the more experienced who wish to refresh their knowledge.


One of the reasons that I love this book is that it feels personal: it begins with the story of a childhood love affair with crystals and it is this authentic story of mystery and wonder that works to draw you in. This book is like a journey into a world of healing and discovery, and the power of natural phenomena both ancient and modern.

One of the other reasons that I love this crystal book is the presentation. This book is modern, it is sleek and it is compelling both to look at and to read: it is so compellingly written that you just can’t wait to move from one chapter to the next..it is written in a way that encourages you to think deeply about your world: your wellbeing and more as it touches upon stress, the connection between our mind, body and spirit, as well as the inability to disconnect from our gadgets, etc…



I’ve always been fascinated by crystals and intrigued by brands like Sjal who harness the power of gemstones for their products. I love the fact that Kristin Petrovich and her mother share a love of crystals that led them to create their uniquely energetic skincare line. Make sure to read the introduction to the book written by Mama Petrovich and then start your journey.

Whether you are a complete novice, or are familiar with gemstones, this book will help you to connect with the power of crystals, no matter where you are on your crystal journey.

It’s made me re-connect with my collection, determined to utilise their energy and keep them close.
