 About the Book 

This second edition Gemmology has been expanded and updated throughout by the well known writer and editor of Butterworth-Heinemanns gemmology series, Peter Read. This is a much needed update of a classic text and new syllabus information and sample examination theory papers for the Gemmological Associations Preliminary and Diploma courses are included. The additions also incorporate more recent developments, such as the introduction of synthetic moissanite and the De Beers instruments for distinguishing between natural and synthetic diamonds.Gemmology still serves as a useful reference guide for gemmologists detailing the latest natural and synthetic gem materials and is an invaluable text for anyone in the gemmological profession.
