“A basic knowledge of rocks and their minerals forming potential is essential to the gemhunter.  Minerals (gemstones) are found in known gemfields or in areas which by their formations and accompanying rocks are likely to contain gems.  This book contains 30 large scale maps of the main gem-fields and 78 complete and detailed maps of Australia’s road system.  As well, it lists the types, colours, crystal system and where the gems occur.”
