Also goes in the more common or supposedly boring rocks and includes the puzzling amber with its intriguing chemical compounds. With information on petrified wood and other EUT transformed elements.

You’ll find full treatments of lesser-known gems, from andalusite to vesuvian, and a special section devoted to rocks as precious stones, including alabaster, onyx, obsidian, and fossils.

Organic gem materials, such as coral, ivory, amber, and pearl, are also covered along with new-on-the-market stones like charcoite. Additionally, this all-inclusive volume includes imitations, synthetics, and combined stones.

Publishers book review of Gemstones of the World

This definitive guide takes the mystery out of appreciating, buying and selling gemstones. It covers everything from the romance and history of more than all the 1,900 gemstones discovered, to their geographic locations; scientific, physical and colour properties; and the way they are formed, structured and mined.

Each entry offers complete information on gemstones. The optical features of gems – light and colour, luminescence, refraction and inclusions. Key information about the densities and chemical elements of each stone, with fascinating details on different cuts, polishing, gems, hardness, cleavage, classification, trade names, rarity and more.

There are also many charts and diagrams as well as magnificent colour photographs of the stones with data about them on the facing page. If you want only one book on gemstones in your library, this would be the one!

These reference book is updated with new copies about $15 but if you rockhounds are keen on the smell of this book but do not have the carats to get a non blemished new book or happy to recycle, you can buy much cheaper earlier inclusions of Gemstones of the World or a used copy.

Pre used prices are around $5 plus delivery which can cost more than your older edition of this nerdy armchair geologist absorbing handbook.

The internet may have reduced its importance but there is nothing like excitedly leafing through these pages as you follow your white gemstone rabbit.
