Melody is one of the major authorities on working with the energy of the Mineral Kingdom. The book Love is in the Earth is the authority reference for the Mineral Kingdom. This book I have used for many years, it was first published in the early 90s.

Melody is a scientist and has recreated the findings in the book with repeated success.

Over 700hundred pages on the metaphysical properties of stones, crystals. Great reference book, if it had photos the book would rate a 5 starts. But you can purchase the separate book "Love is in the Earth Mineralogical Pictorial" which is 407 pages.

Interesting information - I'm not sure that it's true or not. Reading about possible physical and metaphysical properties of beautiful rocks and gems is fun. It also comes in handy when a jewelry purchase is necessary.

If I have a choice, I like knowing (or hoping) what wearing one type of rock or another may do for me. Most of us need all the help we can get while trudging along our life's path. Why not buy a really helpful gemstone pendant for your mother or sister's birthday? This type of info

This is the definitive book for researching the mystical properties of precious and semiprecious gemstones.

It is by far the most thorough and complete listing of stones, as well as the most researched text I have encountered on the subject.

The author also makes a point to cross reference which chakra points each stone corresponds to, its astrological sign, and the number it vibrates to.

The latter has been especially helpful when tying in my research on stones with my research on the Hebrew aleph

The best metaphysical book of Crystals. Melody's book is in easy to read format with detailed information such as Cleansing, Configurations, and Practical applications for working with all types of crystals. I especially love the healing assets of each and every crystal. This book should be in every healer's Library.

Basically the Bible of Crystal energies. It's really beautiful what an impact seemingly inanimate objects (rocks, stones, crystals) can have on ourselves- mentally, emotionally, phsyically, spiritually... CHeck CHeck Check it out!

Recommends it for: everyone
I love this series. This book was the first "metaphysical" book I really found working for me. It's all about rocks, what they are and what their "special" properties are and can do. I highly recommend it for the beginner or the more experienced energy worker. I still find myself using it as a reference book for so many different issues! Surely a book that should be in everyone's libraries.

I found this book to be a useful addition to my library of books on Crystal Healing. I use it as a supplement to my work with Naisha Ahsian's Book of Stones. It's got a few too many variables for me, and I'm not especially interested in the numerical or astrological associations Melody makes to the stones. I do find her descriptions of the uses of individual stones to be helpful.

This book was highly recommended to me by a very dear friend of mine. She guided me through some tough times and became the most incredible friend I ever had. This book (however cheesy the title sounds) is a guide book for anyone interested in the metaphysical meanings of gemstones and minerals. A must have.

I couldn't decide between a 4 and 5 rating, but when I realized just how often I turn to this book as a reference, I had to give it a 5. It's a huge volume which includes almost any mineral, crystal and stone you can imagine with mystical associations.

My favourite book on crystals! Melodie is an epic conduit, and I believe with any book you read on such topics, it is always important that the author is in tune with high frequencies to ensure the information they bring through is pure. I personally feel that is the case with this book.

If you want to know why you are drawn to certain type of gemstones or semi-precious gemstones - you'll know why when you read Love is in the Earth. There truly is a lot of love in the Earth. If we only could take better care of it!!

This is an awesome and invaluable crystal/gem reference/resource book. I'm a crystal collector and an affirmation believer and this is just about the best metaphysical gem/crystal reference book out there!

This book is an excellent reference! I've learned a lot about the crystals I have, and how they each had a quality that I needed to strengthen when I got them.

This is an amazing reference book for identifying stones! Stones vibrate as does everything and this book tells you the vibration and how that vibration influences the human body. Melody is amazing.

Best and most comprehensive crystal reference book you can find. Worth buying if you're seriously serious about your geology and crystal meanings.

This is a good book, but the fact that it relies only on line drawings takes a lot away from it for me.
