"Field Collecting Gemstones and Minerals" according to A Customer. This is an earlier edition of Field Collecting Gemstones and Minerals. Both are excellent, so if this one is hard to find, it may be simpler to get Field Collecting Gemstones and Minerals (see its review).. J. Whittington said An earlier addition by the master. There is little I can add to the reviews for this and other additions. Get a second copy for your back pack. The unequivical guide to finding, collecting, preparing, and displaying gems and minerals.. MarianLibrarian said Great overview for gem hunters.. Very interesting book about how to locate gemstone and mineral deposits. Even though this book was first written many years ago the information it provides is very well organized and thorough, an excellent starting place if you want to go out into the field and look for your own cutting rough or find mineral specimens.
