With all of the interest in spiritual healing properties and use of gems in new age practices, it’s difficult to find a book dedicated solely to the gemstones and minerals mentioned in the Christian Old and New Testaments (and Apocrypha). The book covers basic information on the gems and minerals used in Bible verses. The verse references are useful to go back and determine the context used, and for additional research. A very easy, enjoyable and useful read for anyone interested in gems and Christianity.
