I really liked this book, though the tiny size made it difficult for me to read. I was very interested in the transfer method, and the way the picture is in the book, couldn't really tell if the crystals used were single or double terminated. They didn't give very much written information about it; I THINK they were single, but it was very hard to tell. Other than those two things, I really liked this book. It gave 2 different methods for making elixirs without putting the stones in the water. I have noticed that the lists of stones to not put directly in water to be taken internally varies almost everywhere you see one, so I am extremely wary of making them by any direct method. According to the authors, the transfer method is the way to make the strongest elixir, it is indirect, it's the shortest method, and also looks the easiest. I have never seen this method in any of the other books I've read! The other indirect method was using a quartz test tube-like affair to put in the water, but I was afraid that it could make tiny chips and get glass in the elixir. This is not going to happen with the transfer. Another way (direct) was by boiling the crystals, but I durn sure am not going to boil any of mine; sorry! I believe there were a couple other methods given, which I didn't pay attention to, as they were direct.
All in all was exceptionally good information, and I'm sure the tiny size is better for the trees! Recommended!
