Legendary healer Diane Stein shares her extensive knowledge of gemstones in this concise agate-to-zircon reference. Each listing includes the stone's common name, its corresponding color and chakra, and a concise resume of its healing properties. Stein suggests ways to use stones to support physical and psychic well-being, by simply carrying one in a hand or pocket, wearing it as jewelry, or engaging in more advanced practices like the "laying on of stones." She also presents a glossary of terms designed for beginning students of metaphysical healing practices, and teaches how to clear, dedicate, and maintain crystals to maximize their beneficial effects. A quick reference to 550 gemstones and crystals (including many that are new to the marketplace), and their special healing properties and most helpful applications. Includes diagrams of the Kundalini (physical) and Hara Line (emotional) chakra healing systems for simplified cross-referencing with the stones. Diane Stein's books have sold more than half a million copies and are available in six languages.

Modern Jeweler’s Consumer Guide to Colored Gemstones

Since early 1989, a gem dealer I've known for years has been calling me every few weeks to brief me on mounting mayhem in Colombia's lucrative emerald market. The troubling gist of these calls is always this: There is a full-fledged turf war going on between that South American country's bustling drug and gem trades for control of its emerald ex port business. According to this dealer and several others, anywhere from two to four thousand emerald industry people, mostly miners and deal ers, have been murdered since 1980. No doubt the gem sector, itself never gun shy, has retaliated in full and in kind. After all, the two groups have banded together in an intermittent alliance against a common enemy-Communist guerillas-with results the CIA would envy. I mention this bloodshed because of something the gem dealer once said to me: "I bet you never think of what a gem has to go through to get to a jewelry store:' He's right. I tend to think of colored stones as things of beauty, not objects of gruesome power struggles between mining kingpins and drug lords. Can you blame me, or anyone with insider knowledge, if a gem sheds any connection with its past once sculpted by a cutter into the glittering mar vel we see in a jeweler's showcase? Like Odysseus listening to the sirens' song, we become victims of an aesthetics-induced amnesia.

It's the most notorious rant in the history of conspiracy theories. Consists of hundreds of letters hand written in many segments over a number of years by Bruce Roberts, the creator of synthetic rubies. According to Gemstone: Hughes Aircraft stole Roberts' rubies in 1960 for use in laser weapons research. His subsequent investigation of the theft inspired Roberts to write the Gemstone letters, tracking the secret history of the international mob and industrial espionage, and their role in political intrigue. In 1975, a 24 page chronology known as the Skeleton Key to The Gemstone File began to circulate and has now become a legendary classic of conspiracy literature.

Das Lexikon der Heilsteine ist das derzeit umfangreichste deutsch sprachige Nachschlagewerk der Steinheilkunde. In 215 Kapiteln werden rund 450 als Heilsteine verwendete Gesteine, Mineralien und Varietäten besprochen. Namensherkunft, Entstehung, mineralogische Eigenschaften sowie die Heilwirkung und Anwendung der Steine werden übersichtlich und klar dargestellt. Einzigartig sind außerdem die Hinweise auf Fälschungen von Heilsteinen und deren Identifikationsmöglichkeiten. Hervorragende Farbfotografien von Wolfgang Dengler runden schließlich die Darstellung ab. Besonders wertvoll wird das Lexikon der Heilsteine jedoch durch seine ausführlichen Register. Ein mit 3100 Begriffen in der Fachliteratur einzigartiger Index der Mineraliennamen erläutern alle derzeit üblichen Namen, Synonyme und Handelsbezeichnungen und ist damit eine unschätzbare Hilfe beim Auffinden gesuchter Heilsteine. Der Sachwort-Index mit rund 2000 Einträgen hilft, die Erklärung jedes verwendeten Fachbegriffs zu finden, und der therapeutische Index fasst die therapeutisch verwendeten Heilsteine für rund 1500 Indikationen zusammen. Damit ist das Lexikon ein Nachschlagewerk, das seinen Namen wirklich verdient.

Gemstones is the first attempt in English to bring together the geological, mineralogical and gemmological developments that have taken place during the last thirty years. Though there have been many gemstone books published in that time, most have been concerned, understandably and rightly, with the science of gem testing and have covered that area very well. Details of the geological occurrence of many of the classic gemstones, and of nearly all those which have only recently been discovered, have been less adequately dealt with. Coverage has been restricted to a number of papers in a wide variety of geological and mineralogical journals. Gemstones hopes to get the balance right. In the preparation of the book all the journals and monographs in the field have been consulted so that the book should stand for some years as the authority to which gemmologists and others turn in the first instance. Ease of reference and depth of coverage make Gemstones both a reference book and a bench book. Acknow ledgements I am grateful to Brian Jackson of the Department of Geology, Royal Museums of Scotland who read the manuscript and painstakingly indicated places where amendment or alteration was needed. I am also grateful to the publishers of the books on which the line illustrations are based. The colour plates present in the book derive from a number of sources, which I would like to acknowledge as follows. Plates 1, 4-15 and 17 Crown copyright reserved.
