The Real Secrets of Crystal Power

Throughout history, people have tapped into the power of crystals and gems. They were used in the ancient Middle East, India, Europe, and the Americas. They are still used by people all over the world for spiritual power, to deflect bad luck, and much more.

But have you ever wondered why crystals work as they do? You've probably heard the explanation that "they are batteries" or "they store energy," but that doesn't really explain how they do anything. Finally, there is a book that fully explains how and why crystals work, along with how you can easily make use of them in Henry M. Mason's The Seven Secrets of Crystal Talismans.

Mason is a Graduate Gemologist, certified by the Gemological Institute of America. In this book he shows how the atomic structure of crystals have inherent meanings. The book then draws on color psychology so you can pick the color stone to use after you identify the crystal structure you need. Amazingly, these two combine to produce meanings and purposes of crystals that match many of the stones' traditional magical meanings.

Seven Powerful Secrets
The Seven Secrets of Crystal Talismans is a stunning new interpretation of crystal power that is as ancient as time and as modern as tomorrow. In it you'll learn seven secrets that will put you in control of crystals so you can use them to improve your life:

1. How talismans get their power—from the Earth, Moon, and Sun
2. Six crystal structures—how each is related to a major human need
3. How colors are related to the passage of time and the phases of life
4. Gaining power from crystals talismans based on their chemical origins
5. How to fashion talismans—select correct material, shape, and setting
6. How to unite talismans with the Life Force to give them more power
7. How to select, activate, and use crystal talismans

With this book the use of crystals moves out of the strictly magical realm and into the world of true science. If you've tried to work with crystals in the past and not been successful or satisfied with them, this book will show you how to successfully use them with easy to follow steps.

Not Just Another Recap
If you're interested in crystals and gems, you'll be delighted to see that The Seven Secrets of Crystal Talismans is not simply a retread of other books and information going back to ancient Rome. This book, while being firmly based in tradition, finally gives you the information to understand where the traditions come from and how to use them. Instead of simply following books that say, "Use this stone for that purpose," you'll fully understand why you should select a particular gem, how to increase it's innate power, and how to use it to achieve your goals.

Once you understand the basic concepts presented in the book, you can use the information in the appendix listing the crystal matrix and Earth power of hundreds of crystals and gems to find the appropriate stone for any talismanic purpose. This book becomes the most complete book for designing talismans ever. There is even a twelve-page color chart to make it easy to identify the crystal or gem you need.

If you were interested in crystals and gems in the past, but your interest has faded, this is the book that will spark your imagination and bring your interest in crystals to a new and enhanced life. If you want to make talismans that really work and which don't require elaborate rituals or knowledge of archaic languages, this book is the one you must read. And if you're just becoming interested in the magical and spiritual properties of crystals and gems and wondering which book you should get, this is it!

With its focus on fun and frivolity, it's no wonder Beltane is one of the most festive Sabbats of the year for many modern Pagans. Held each year on or around May 1st, Beltane is a celebration of vitality, fertility, strength, and growth reflecting a blending of many traditions. It gets its name from the pre-Christian Celtic Bealtaine, which... read this article
