Love this much potential!!

I’m a collector of crystals, so an app that allows you to simply photograph a stone & then identifies it for you is like a dream come true. While there is definitely room for improvement, it seems the developers of the app are well aware of this, encouraging the user to participate in this process, which I appreciate. I’d love to see a few things, such as: 1) the ability to print out ones rock /crystal collection, (ie I have 70 stones in my collection in the app, so a visual color chart that allows one to include your original photos and the name & main properties of each rock) I think would be super exciting, instead of just downloading other people’s charts of “the most important stones” since this is ultimately subjective and could be very creative. 2) the ability to add text to one’s personal collection. For instance, if I could, I’d write my own metaphysical associations and/or properties of the stones, & how I use the stone in my own life/work. While there is currently a plethora of source material in this realm, to combine the ability to identify & create one’s own personal, experiential source material via photograph and then recorded uses, metaphysical properties etc. would make this app an essential tool in one’s own process of discovery and learning.

Been waiting a long time for something like this

I’ve downloaded and used nearly ever app available on google and apple trying to find something that works this well and accurate. Do all my rocks get properly identified…no,however, I’m also not a geologist so maybe there’s a few I’m wrong about. This app gives multiple choices to run through and info about those choices. I’ve not used another app that’s as accurate or pristine. My only issue with this app is the astronomical price combined with no feed to speak to others about what you have or help identifying in a way that a computer can’t pick up. I know I will be canceling my membership shortly because I can be paying this much for a visual collects and identification to only use a few times a month but that app it’s self is total great. I think 12$ a month would be pushing it but that’s the most I’d be willing to pay month to month. Try this app for at least a month if you are a rock hound or trying to boost your knowledge. It’s pretty good and easy to use.

Love it!

i’ve been trying to get into witchcraft lately and i’ve loved finding out the healing properties of different stones. i have some red agate, but i couldn’t find it on the app. i have realized some of my stones were on the app, but didn’t have the tab of “healing properties”. (the stones are garnet and tiger’s eye) i’m not sure if this just means they don’t have healing properties, or if the app just doesn’t have the info. i’ve tried to test the app and see if it would pick up the stones as what they actually are, but it was incorrect. my stones are really tiny, like grains of rice, so it might just be the size. other than that, i collect rocks and it’s great to know what they are and if they have any healing properties.

however, i do have a suggestion. i cleanse my crystals with moon/sun water and it would be great to know if my newer crystals can be in water or not.

Thank you for your 5-star review. The healing properties can be found for most stones in the app's info part. Kindly be noted that the red agate is called carnelian agate in our app and you can search this name for more information. As we are still in the process of engaging our database, please check the update of the app on a regular basis. If any further help is needed later, please feel free to contact us via
