Crystal Basics Pocket Encyclopedia

Back in 2020 I reviewed Crystal Basics: The Energetic, Healing & Spiritual Power of 200 Gemstones by Nicholas Pearson. I declared the book as destined to be a classicand couldn’t image what Pearson could possibly do next.

Now we know, Crystal Basics Pocket Encyclopedia: The Energetic, Healing & Spiritual Power of 450 Gemstones.

Take ALL the information about working with crystals, what they are, charging them, correspondences, etc. from Crystal Basicsand SMOOSH it into a tight 40 pages. Then offer over DOUBLE the original entries about specific crystals, and you’ve got the Pocket Encyclopedia.The individual entries appear to have just as much information, just in a smaller font. That said, the OG Crystal Basicshas a lot to offer, with more information and an easier to read larger font. I hate to be that, get them bothreviewer, but having both would be an absolute boon to the serious crystal enthusiast. However, if you don’t mind smaller fonts, are looking to save a little cash, or like the idea of carrying a crystal reference book with you when visiting your local metaphysical book shop, Crystal Basics Pocket Encyclopediais the one to get.

Nicholas Pearson, in my opinion, is the greatest living expert on all aspects of everything crystal. His work is concise and accessible, and any person interested in crystals should have at least one of his books on their shelves.
