I expected Ruby and Sapphire to be excellent.
Mine arrived yesterday.

It is a jaw dropping, magnificent volume; I consider it the most exceptional compilation of information, lavish photography and illustration ever written on a gemological topic.....

So glad to hear the response (and glad to hear that everyone's copies have arrived safely). It's comments like these that keep us going. :D

I would like to thank particularly the people who co-authored chapters, including John Emmett, Emily Dubinsky, Ken Scarratt, Lisbet Thoresen, Jennifer Stone-Sundberg, Richard Allen and John Saul. Also major thanks to John Koivula, Nathan Renfro, Danny Sanchez, & Jennifer Stone-Sundberg. And my awesome proofing team, David, Phyllis & Bob Hughes, with nods to Julie Poli, Nalin Fernando, Elise Skalwold. With photos from the finest: Jeff Scovil, Robert Weldon and many others. Finally my lovely wife, Wimon, and daughter, Billie, who worked tirelessly with me to pull this off.
