Final volume in a three volume series: a must have to complete 8 Jan. 2013
By Mark D. R. Stern - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had purchased and read Newman's Exotic Gems volumes one and two. But as a gemstone fancier, easily transfixed by the Crown Jewels to modern designer pieces, I realized that there were some gems missing.
In Rare Gemstones, Newman finishes her study of gemstones. In this volume she includes the rarer, more contemporary gemstones gaining popularity. The full color illustrations range from raw crystals, to cut faceted stones, and to finished jewelry using these gems.
This is not only a guide for amateur gemologists but for jewelry fans. Just the photographs alone make it difficult to put down as you covet the beautiful gems. Each gem has a chapter headed by scientific facts followed by additional information on mines, qualities, uses, quickly followed by the illustrations. The book is easy to use with a table of contents and an index, as well as appendices. Further information on other books available from the publisher on the topic are also given if you want to expand your library.
I have purchased a variety of gem guides and this series by Renee Newman is my favorite.

So good images, some good info 11 Aug. 2014
By Brandon Moak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a gemologist, I appreciated a book I could show my customers that featured rare gems. However, some of the gems that were included were not very rare, others were rarely seen due to hardness problems, and the pricing across the board was inaccurate. So good images, some good info, but skewed knowledge of what is selling in the industry and at what prices.

Great book. 25 May 2014
By Sueg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this today and I started to read it. I really like it. Although I do wish that they had more stones in that I'm really interested in, like Tanzanite for one. This I found was very interesting. In it there are pictures of rare stones and some I had never heard of or seen. So now I will have to look for these stones to get for my collection. This book I really like, because it tells what stones are used in jewelry, how to find an appraiser. Take also tells you what stone are the most durable and how to take care of them. Its just a great book.
