There are a now quite a few crystal books available, and so it is relatively easy to buy one that will help you to learn more about crystals, rocks and stones.
I have written reviews on some of my favorites, just to give you an idea whether a certain book will benefit you.
Some are bigger, much bigger like the Melody Encyclopedia, and I have to admit to thinking its one of the best on the market.
But its not one to take with you as its very big and very heavy. I love Judy Hall's books, and they are a good size too, not to heavy.
Its a good idea to get yourself one, if you are into crystals, and start with a basic one like The Crystal Bible.
