Most gem and mineral books are great reference manuals, but this is both beautiful and informative.The photographs are large and colourful & it is a nice high quality that feels nice to flip through.
It is nice to have a book that showcases some of the finest pieces in existence, some of which you can even see in person at the ROM.
