The boyfriend fears me now

by DaMamaJama on Oct 31, 2009

He thinks I bought this book as a hint to him, when really I'm just a geek geologist who likes pretty rocks. This book has beautiful specimen photos as well as lots of great info, including mineralogical data and nomenclature. An excellent reference! Schumann rocks1


A Rock Hound's Treasure

by AntiqueFrameHunter on Aug 9, 2008

The book is full of beautiful photographs, simple but scientific explanations make this book readable to even a beginner in the field of gemology or rock hunting. A must for every person who has a "passion" for gemstones.
