Again, anyone who KNOWS me well knows that I don't always read a book cover-to-cover (including The Bible, which I've read and of which many scriptures I've memorized and quoted). I skip around. So, I'm not on any one page but I began reading it 2 or 3 days ago.

This book was given to me by a family member. It definitely has some juicy information. Once I've absorbed all of the details which lie within these 268 pages, I can take a short break from my intense crystal and stone magical and healing properties research. ( )

I'm disappointed by the fact that there weren't exactly a lot of details on the stones. Otherwise good for working stones into magic. ( )

Every metaphysical rockhound's bible. GET THIS BOOK. ( )

This book is a great read and really brings homes the various things you can do with the elements as far as spell work. Ingenious and full of great ideas for practice, this shows just how great an author and magical practitioner Cunningham was. A must have for your library if you are pagan who works with the elements.
