DICTIONARY OF GEMSTONES AND JEWELRY (HARDBACK)

By Akira Chikayama

New copy in mint condition


This full colour handbook is ideal for practising gemmologists, jewellers or amateur collectors. Written by a leading Japanese expert in precious and semi-precious stones it has been fully updated and translated into English. 

It's an ideal size for general use yet packed with information and hundreds of colour photos. It covers gemstone varieties, gemstone localities, famous gemstones, historical figures in the gem world, and technical terms in areas such as optics, geology and mining technology.

Most importantly, the book is easy to read without lapsing into jargon which is not explained.
