Good basic knowledge to be found here. Not for people who are past novice stage. Good start for those who are.

Although the cover shows a raw gem, this book is oriented towards jewelry gems, and most photos show faceted and polished gems. Most entries are brief (generally one per page, but some more), but each one I've looked at is interesting, with information about where the stone comes from, and technical information about chemical composition and crystal form. There are technical charts and tables at the end. The book is small but gives the impression of being a reduced-size version of a larger book, because the print is small and each entry is fairly contentful. Definitely an interesting & informative browse in a fairly small package.
