“This is a unique book.  It marks the coming of age of the hobby of collecting, cutting and polishing gemstones in Australia.  For this is the first book to be published in this country dealing with every aspect of one of the most fascinating pastimes discovered by man.  What is a gemstone?  What does it look like?  Where can gemstones be found?  These questions and many more are answered in this book.  Australia’s rainbow of gemstones is listed, described in detail and illustrated in the full glory of their natural colors.”
