Book Review: Wisdom Of The Gemstone Guardians

Michael Katz’ Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is unique among crystal healing books in many regards. One thing that sets it apart is that it makes no secret of the fact that is practically entirely ‘channeled’ from spirit entities, the so called ‘Gemstone Guardians.’

At the same time as this may sound ‘airy fairy’ to many conservative health practitioners and even herbalists, author Michael Katz firmly believes this form of methodically approached crystal healing, which he refers to as Gemstone Energy Medicine, has a bright future within the conventional health field.

And Mr. Katz does not stand alone in his conviction. Numerous athletes are firm believers in the power of therapeutic quality gem stones. Testimonials can be found on Katz’ site from Swedish Olympic Medalist Glen Christiansen, British Olympic Swimmer Mark Foster, Arizona Diamondbacks’ Pitcher Tanner Eriksen, and Olympic Trainer and Triathlete Art Dilworth.

Another celebrity testimonial comes from Larry King, of Larry King Live, who can be found quoted on the sleeve of the 1997 edition of this book as saying, “Some inner voice told me to read this book. Thank you, inner voice. What a remarkable study.”

The material in Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is made up of the teachings of twenty-nine ‘Gemstone Guardians,” each of whom is in charge of a particular gemstone. They tell us of the powers and healing qualities of each stone.

Even though Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is technically speaking a non-fiction book, it is so exquisitely well written that it’s actually a more enjoyable read, cover to cover, than most novels. It’s hard to put down once you’ve begun reading it, and I’ve heard of no other book engendering an interest in crystal healing in the previously uninitiated.

It should be noted that Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is not a reference book on crystals. It is an inspirational story with in-depth information about a select few of the most powerful healing gemstones and crystals available on the market today. If you are looking for a reference book, there are better choices. If you’re ready to be set on fire about gemstones, then Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is the book for you.

The best-selling Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians has been reprinted numerous times. The original title of the book was Gifts of the Gemstone Guardians. A later intermediary edition was sold as Gemisphere Luminary.

Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians contains information on Quarts, Lavender Quartz, Aventurine, Emerald, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Rhodochrosite, Amethyst, Purple Rainbow Fluorite, Blue Sapphire, Indigo (crystalline form of Sodalite), Carnelian, Citrine, Aquamarine, Green Tourmaline, Pink Tourmaline, Sodalite, Leopardskin Jasper, Poppy Jasper, Bloodstone, Ivorite, Opalite, Riverstone, Rhodonite, Malachite, Lapis Lazuli, Black Onyx, Mother of Pearl and Pearl.
