Description

With 10 illustrative Plates. This is a study of the symbolism of precious stones, and how they have been used as magical objects through the ages, both intrinsically, and as a vehicle for symbolic engravings. The book covers Hindu, Jewish, Chinese, Egyptian, Roman, Gnostic, and Christian lore of gems. The final section discusses the astrological connections of key gems, sign by sign. This work also includes quite a bit of history of important (and often 'cursed') stones such as the Hope diamond, and practical advice about purchasing gems. Anyone interested in the symbolism of gemstones will find this a great reference and a fascinating read.

This book has 175 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1922.

Production notes: This ebook of The Book of Talismans, Amulets and Zodiacal Gems was published by Global Grey in 2018.
