Excellent photography

This book covers everything from the equipment you will need and how to collect samples to photos of the gems in their uncut state, what they look like polished, and finally set in jewellery. I am new to this as a hobby but Patti's enthusiasm for her field is contagious. In her book I know I have found an invaluable resource which will help me to learn a lot quickly.

An Invaluable Reference Tool

As I study geography I bought this hoping it might enlighten me on one of my weakest areas. The photographs are so clear and each one is accompanied by clear and detailed information on each rock. I haven't been able to think of a rock that is not included in this wonderful book. If you collect stones or have a general interest in them, then this book is for you.
