World of Gemstones

By: Rudolf Duda & Lubos Rejl

Hardback Book


"They have a magical life all their own. Passed on from generation to generation, they are silent witnesses of the distant past.....


Here in 260 vivid color photographs are over eighty species and varieties of gemstones from across the world - in their natural shapes, cut and mounted in jewelry. Included are not only the classic gemstones and precious metals, but also many recently discovered stones, others made by living things - pearls, amber, and coral - and even some common rocks, whose uniqueness stands out only after they have been cut and polished.


Read about their origin and properties, their history, astrology, and legendary healing powers - and you might find a gemstone that could change your life!"
