Good Evening,

I’m looking to expand my rather small library here and was hoping for some recommendations. What is the one book that you find the most important in your collection?

I spent a small mint on a copy of Alan Hodgkinson’s Gem Testing Techniques this summer and that’s proved an excellent purchase.

Gemological, on appraisal theory and technique, any recommendations are welcome!

Thanks
Raeghan

For appraisal related topics, I recommend the Anna Miller books.

Software I use almost everyday is Gemology Tools Professional.

Richard Wise's Secrets of the Gem Trade explains how to recognize quality....the factors which really make a gem a gem.

Hope this helps.
