|Two recent publications I have added to my bookshelf. Both good to browse, but not for those intent on serious study of either subject.|
|Apparently the information in this book was first published as part of a larger compendium called " Myths of the East ". This new paperback is a lovely glossy book filled with many interesting pictures, illustrating the different entries.
The subjects are listed alphabetically, with special sections for important topics like "Yin and Yang" and "Chinese Dragons".
|" Mythology of Asia and the Far East "
Myths and legends of China, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.

|A handy size little reference book. Lists a large number of minerals with their associated healing and mystical properties.
Each entry is illustrated with pictures of the relevant crystal and a very brief discussion of sources and rarity value. Not intended as a geological work, but intersting for the perspective it offers.
|" The Crystal Bible "
A definitive guide to Crystals
