Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful Resource I bought this book to help identify some rocks and crystals I had purchased. I found it iseful because of the organization of the book. The illustrations are grouped by the by colour and shape of the rock crystals, so it is pretty simple to look thing up. I was able to identify most of my rocks without too much difficulty.
