The information appeared to be all 100% correct however it was not presented in much depth. Good if you're just getting started collecting gems, etc. Not so good if you have a lot of knowledge to begin with.
I would rate this 3.75 to 4.0 stars out of 5. Recommended for anyone wanting more information and is just starting down the pathway of gem collecting, etc.
This is a perfect addition to any gem-collectors arsenal, and a great buy for anyone who deals with gems and jewelry in general, be it professional or hobby.
At times I was frustrated by the elusiveness about what a particular gem would be worth. The author reminds us selling and trading of gems might well be, if not the second oldest profession, one of the early ones.
I recommend this book to anybody. If you pick it up because of the bright colorful images, you will be caught by the flowing enthusiasm of the author. Many a night, my forehead hit the pages as I realized my reading had kept me up way too late.
