1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By John Madiro on April 24, 2015
Format: Hardcover
As a reader with a humble background in Diamond Physics and Lattice Dynamics, I found this Rough Diamonds A Practical Guide to be well thought of, clearly written, appropriately illustrated and in line with most factual and scientifically expected behaviours of crystals formed under different physical regimes. The camera work and the diagram details show a wealth of background knowledge and field experience. Reading this book gives a good starting point for any one finding their way into the diamond business. However from my knowledge in the real buying and selling field, I would like to recommend that (in addition to reading this book), the reader should enroll for specialized training from qualified instructors in reputable colleges in order to be fully equiped for the field as pricing differs from rough to rough, region to region and no two gemologists can give you the same price for the rough or parcel.
I found this book easy to read and the language used to be quite accessible. Comes highly recommended. Dr. Madiro (PhD)
