Written by gemmologist Sally Spencer FGA DGA, this invaluable book tells you everything you need to know about working with different types of gemstones. Covering familiar stones such as amethyst and topaz through to the more unusual, each gemstone has information about common treatments, durability (and whether it might survive a swipe from a file or abrasive wheel, the pickle pot, repairing or resizing, polishing or cleaning using steam or an ultrasonic cleaner), and the considerations to be given when designing with a particular gemstone.

"As a gemmologist I don't like to see damaged or broken gemstones and as a jeweller I understand how frustrating it can be when that happens, especially when it might be avoided with a little additional knowledge. This was the reason for writing my Jewellers' quick reference guide to working with gemstones, written specifically for jewellers to live on the bench ready to answer queries when designing or working on a piece of jewellery."
