Good Morning! .My question is...Which guide is the most reliable on the intentions of certain stones and crystals? I have looked at quite a few on the internet and they seem to contradict each other. I appreciate you responding at your earliest convenience.
Thank you for your inquiry. Your observation has been brought up before, and not just in regards to internet guides, but also in reference to the myriad of crystal books that exist with varying descriptions of their properties on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. I think that because as human beings we are so varied and unique (or at least our responses to certain stimuli are) you will see different and sometimes conflicting information about crystal properties. I have a couple of books that have become my favorite over the years, and of course I am partial to the information found on this site, not only the reference guides, but the vast history of customer inquiries and recommendations:

You also may find the following information helpful:
I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals for healing should be used as a complement to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care. The information offered here is based on a combination of my own personal experiences and that of others on using crystals for healing. My hope is that you will let your own intuition guide your path in working with crystals as well.
