Dictionary of Gems and Gemology
The rapid growth of gemological sciences and mineralogy requires a comprehensive dictionary for gemologists, mineralogists, geologists, jewel dealers, industry, and hobbyists. This volume offers a "one-stop reference" to any matter dealing with gems, gemology, jewelry and related sciences. The revised and expanded second edition of this dictionary contains about 25,000 entries – some 9,000 more than the first edition. The detailed definitions are now complemented by more than 1,500 charts, diagrams and figures.
