Hey all. I've seen some people mention different books on this site sometime. And I go to look them up on amazon, to find out prices, and amazon (of course) also gives you other books to look at. It's a little overwhelming, how many books there are. So I was wondering, is there any list of books out there, for a beginner to all this ("this" meaning like, goldsmithing, the different aspects of it, different techniques, different things you need to know, and gemology, different gem types, history of gem types, info, inclusions, info about synthetics, stuff like that) for under a hundred dollars per book (preferably under fifty)?

Thanks for any help and info.

You can start here, but they're not listed by price.
