Gemstones of the World – Walter Schumann – Google Books
Gemstones of the World is the single, cornerstone volume that every hobbyist, jeweler, jewelry maker, and rockhound needs. More than 1, full-color photos showcase each precious and semiprecious stone in its rough, natural, polished, and cut renditions. There are even full treatments of lesser-known gems; a special section on rocks as precious stones; and organic gem materials. This book is above the rest of the gem books in its quality color photos of the full range of gemstones.
It even usually includes a view of the gems still bound in the matrix rock.
I bought this book because my previous gem book is now out of date. This book has the latest gems included and plenty of helpful pictures.
The information is thorough but basic and the book will give most laypeople which I am what the need.
