    1. Aus Neugier erwarb ich gebraucht dieses Buch, allerdings die englischen Ausgabe Es gibt noch eine deutsche Auflage mit dem Titel Edelsteine und Schmucksteine aus dem BLV Verlag, von der ich zu dem Zeitpunkt noch nichts wusste Das Buechlein macht von aussen einen eher unscheinbaren Eindruck,allerdings beeindruckte mich schon bevor ich es das erste Mal aufgeschlagen hatte, schon sein unglaubliches Gewicht Es ist ein richtig hochwertiges Buch Wenn man dann hineinblickt, huepft das Herz Viele viele [...]


    2. My travels around Asia sparked my interest in buying gems, jade and pearls After a few false starts, I knew I needed a resource I could carry with me and consult on the spot Not only do I feel confident in my purchases, I know see items that are of value that I passed by because I didn t understand what they were The book covers a great deal of information despite its small format At first I wasn t interested in the beginning chapters I thought they were for jewelers or serious collectors Now [...]

    6. If you ve always wanted to learn about gems including obscure ones then this is the book to buy The photos are fantastic, the information very detailed, but easy to understand, and very self explanatory All in all, definitely a book worth reading I can t stress enough that this is an excellent informational book It s compact can fit in a woman s purse and even includes details on how to determine if various gems are real or fake Excellent source of information, easy to use for referral, even f [...]
