Format: Paperback
The late Scott Cunningham(may he rest in peace in the
Summerlands)really hit the mark with this book, and the
only sad thing is that he is not around to review some
newly used/discovered (or new in popularity, I mean)gems,
such as gaspeite, kyanite, labradorite, and spesserite.
I also wish he'd included a few pictures next to each stone,
(there are pictures included in a inset, but not for all
stones reveiwed), which would be difficult to due variations
in stones, but would give the reader some clue as to what to
look for for each, or, for example, that turquoise often has
black inclusions and jade can be lavender, of all colours! I
had thought I was seeing a fake, but now know I missed a rare
opportunity to buy a lavender jade. I also didn't know it came
in white, either. Other than that, given the time period it
was written, I use it as a reference constantly, and hold it as
a "gold standard" for other books of its ilk. A pity he (Scott)
has had to leave the Earth plane, for I am sure there is much
more he had to teach us. This book is a must-have for anyone
interested in gemology or new-age healing and properties of
stones, or even simply those who wear gems as jewelry just
because it looks good! Two thumbs up and as I said, this
book is indispensible to me./'Nuff said.

Format: Paperback
My review is based on the revised 2002 second edition, first printing of this title. The first edition went through 22 printings, evidence that this book will be a sought-after reference for years to come.
Scott Cunningham introduced the secrets and powers of over 100 gems and metals in his book. What I find especially pleasing is the 16-page color insert in the middle. The photos are clear and brilliant, very colorful samples of some of the most popular magical gems. Hematite or bloodstone, is one of my favorites. This book revealed the folk name as being "volcano spit." Its element is fire, and powers are healing, grounding, and divination. You will learn magical lore and uses for many stones, but most of all you will be encouraged to use the ones that speak to your personally.
I have a friend who collects rocks wherever she goes, and has a story for each one of them. She even inherited a jar of rocks from her Great Grandmother, a gift that is precious to her. She will love this title. Any rock collector or person who uses stones as a spiritual tool should get this book in their reference collection!

Format: Paperback
This book is detailed but not exhaustive. Cunningham has a way of cutting through the veils of arcane muddle and get right to the subject at hand. This is the reference that we recommend for those that wish to enter the world of gemstone, crystal and metal magic and a must for anyone that needs a reference on this subject. The description of each mineral or metals mystical properties are clearly described in enough detail to let you know what is is best suited for. The chapters preceding the descriptions are written in a simple and straight forward manner that does not favor any one religion or belief system. He lets the reader take what they need from it and apply it accordingly. Mr. Cunningham also includes a quick reference summary that is set up in a logical and easy to use format. It is a shame that Scott Cunningham is no longer with us. His direct way of sharing this important information is still needed in the spiritual community.

Format: Paperback
I wish this book had better documented its sources. A lot of the material was very limited in its usefulness. I bought this and used it maybe three times. It is gathering dust.
There is NOTHING patently WRONG with the book, it's just not very useful or engaging.
Cunningham did much better work.

This book is an excellent reference book. It contains a number of color photos to help you along the way. All I can say is that this book answered any questions I may have had regarding this topic and anytime I have a question regarding this subject I can refer to this book and find my answer.

Format: Paperback
I questioned myself when I first purchased this book, but now I know that I was destined to have it. Ever since I added it to my personal library, I have had to use it several time per week, always having to look up information for fellow wiccan friends on what materials to make their jewelry out of for protection, enlightenment, love attraction, or just guidance. The great part about it was that it gives a description of each crystal or metal, along with astrological, magical, and which deity it connects to. Even better, with many of the entries it gives examples of uses in spells. This is definitely a must have for anyone who is a serious earth-based wiccan.
