Full color, definitive handbook for the gemologist, jeweler, and rockhound, written by Japan's prioneer gemologist and leading authority on the world of precious stones, now fully translated and updated. Just the right size: not so large as to be unwieldy, nor so slim as to be only occasionally useful!

Entries on a wide range of terms, from individual gemstone varieties through historical personages to jewelry techniques to optics, geology and mining technology.

The dictionary also outlines many of the most important trade institutions, gem and jewelry collections, and gem localities around the world, so many of which the author actually visited himself. 652 pages: more than 9,000 headwords, 1,300 illustrations, diagrams and maps: 26 appendices.
