Select Bibliography Crystal, Stones, And Related References
A number of people have asked where I learned about crystals and stones and what books I've used. There are so many people and books, I'm not sure I can remember them all. I've also done extensive reading on the internet over the last 15 years. I've also learned immeasurably from crystals and stones themselves, working and playing with them over even more years. I try to learn more all the time, where ever I can. Here are many of the people and places I've especially learned from.
Some people I've learned about crystals and related topics from are:
Larry Hargrave, Faith Sisk, Jack Golightly, Cherie C, Ken Lowry, Bob Vaughan, Moonsinger, Lighten, Rita Albrecht, and so many others especially at the Tucson Gem and Mineral shows, and the gentleman whose name I never knew who showed me in the metaphysical shop so many years ago that you can feel crystal energy.
