I struggled to get my hands on the second edition of this book.

My problem is that some parts of the text seem to be missing from my book (without any page being missing).

Notably, the chapter about chalcedony treatments starts with a summary of treatments that lists a part H about 'composites' and a part J about 'adding dendritic inclusions', but the text that follows stops at paragraph G and there's no H and J paragraph.

So, if any of you have the Second edition on hand, could you please check if the same part of the text is missing in your book, or is it only mine which has some printing issue?

Thanks.

Are you referring to the Kurt Nassau book?

yep, Gemstone enhancement 2nd edition by Kurt Nassau.
A part of the text seem to be missing from the chalcedony chapter in my book, and I'm wondering if this is normal, or if it's only my book that has some printing issue.

Here I am. I have just checked my copy of the book. :) It looks like a typo error since there are two "F, G" paragraphs and the second one deals with adding dendritic inclusions, etc. that should have been discussed in "H, J". So imho the second "F, G" paragraph should have been labeled "H, J".

EDIT: I did read again carefully, and found the paragraph about dendrites and composites I was looking for. Stupid me :-)
