Crystal Book Reviews

The books about crystals that are shown below are all very in-depth crystal reference books.

There are some authors of crystal books who have been in the crystal industry for many years. Having one of their books on hand for reference purposes is beneficial.

Melody's Encyclopedia Love Is In The Earth, is a book that covers more than most. 

This book gives you so much information, and covers so many crystals that on its own is almost a reference library.

The earlier book of the same name had a separate book with pictures in, so be careful when you look at these selling.
