I'm a bookworm! I have so many gemologybooks but none about rough.
Recomendations, anyone?

Did read a litle about a book called "Understanding rough gemstones" but the reviews didn't say that much... And there were no information about the price, just an orderingform??? The title looks good at least...

Understanding rough gemstones is a very good book, especially if you are a student or starting to learn about rough gemstones. I guess thats the only book which is based only on Rough Gemstones. The cost is quite reasonable. Please check their website - they have all the details there.. I guess its below $20.

I did buy your book and it costed $25 which I find resonable. Have just started read it so I can´t tell if it´s good or not yet! But it is NOT the ONLY book about rough gemstones...

It would be most polite way to express my impression about it too...

Sorry, but I have had a hard time finding time to read it. About a quarter read yet and that feels fine, I actually already feel that this is a book I don´t want to miss...
But I´ll come back when I have finished it!

Well then, mixed feelings!
I don´t actually like this book but I´m happy to have read it!
I do not like the way that it´s written (that´s a personal feeling) but I like the facts.
It is WELL worth the money it costs, no doubt about that!
Buy it! :wink:
