We were pleased to find this new book because it is excellent and also Crystal Connections is our business name. There are matching oracle cards which we also stock. You are guided on how to cleanse, connect with, combine with other methods, make elixirs and scry with each crystal.

Appropriate power animals, plants, astrological correspondences and best day are also suggested. The illustrations show several different forms of the crystals and the list he covers is comprehensive.

The price is $49 and offers a real alternative to the Crystal Bible.

These are the two basic books on Tarot which I recommend to my students. The Ultimate Guide focuses specifically on the Rider-Waite Tarot, and there are two more in this series on the Radiant Rider-Waite and the Crowley Thoth deck.
The Tarot Bible is more general and also gives an excellent history of the Tarot.
Although the Tarot decks include a small booklet, it is much more useful to have a detailed book to give in depth background and interpretations of each card.

The "Bible" series is written by a specialist in each subject. The Crystal Bible is our best selling book and contains general information on readily available crystals together with excellent illustrations. Crystal Bibles two and three are quite different, each describing other unusual and rare crystals.We also stock the Chakra and Angel Bibles, as well as the Reiki and Psychic's Bibles, among others.


An oracle can be consulted for an overview of a present situation, giving wise advice about  what course to take without taking decision-making out of our own hands.

Doreen Virtue has produced many sets of oracle cards, each containing 44 cards and a booklet.Every card is beautifully illustrated, sending a positive message to help us release fears and emotional blocks. They are user-friendly, needing no study to be effectively consulted.

We stock a number of other oracles by different authors. Here are three of the most popular. On the left are the Wisdom of Avalon cards by Canadian Colette Baron-Reid who also produces Wisdom of the Hidden Realms and Wisdom of the Oracle cards. All give excellent insight in more depth than Doreen Virtue. In the centre are the Native Spirit cards by American Indian Denise Linn who also produces the wonderful Soul Coaching cards seen on the right. These provide a direct connection to the soul and give accurate heart-felt readings.

At last we have the long-awaited Evolution edition of the Crystal Ally cards by Naisha Ahsian. There are now 70 crystals instead of the original 50 so four more for each suit of Earth, Fire, Water, Wind and Storm, as well as separate cards for each element.

Each crystal has a key word, an explanation , a message and an affirmation. I have long found Naisha's work to be of great value and often use her cards as an introduction to a healing or tarot reading. The new cards are of a more 'normal' size and easier to work with.

We already stock most of the crystals she recommends and where we don't, offer acceptable alternatives. I am on the track of the new ones and already have apophylite pyramids in store.

Runes are an ancient Norse system of magic, divination and writing. There are a number of different futharks or alphabets but during workshops Kay teaches the original 24 rune system as taught to her by Runemaster Neil Giles.

We stock a number of crystal rune sets from $25 to $45 or it is easy to make your own.
