Thought to be good for the eyes, opals are the basis for the term 'ophthalmologist.' Following an overview of the history of stones as objects of folklore, worship, and scientific interest from antiquity to the Middle Ages, Lecouteux, a former professor of medieval literature and civilization at the Sorbonne, presents a dictionary covering some 800 stones and minerals that have been used for magical/therapeutic purposes. The work includes entry references, cross-references, illustrations, a bibliography, and list of the publisher's books of related interest. No index has been provided.
