Gemmological Instruments deals with the developments in diamond grading equipment and gem testing instruments since the publication of the first edition in 1978. These developments include improvements in the versatility and styling of existing instruments such as the reflectivity meter, the composite spectroscope, and the refractometer. It also addresses the criticisms in the first edition and provides a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of different gem testing equipment. This book is organized into 16 chapters that describe groundbreaking instruments like the thermal conductivity diamond testers and home-constructed items that while innovative have not yet been commercialized. There are also chapters dealing with microphotography and identification of synthetics and stimulants. This book also provides a listing of gemstone constants and characteristic inclusions in natural and synthetic gemstones. This book will be of interest to people interested in equipment for gem testing and diamond grading.

Beginner's Guide to Gemmology presents the profiles of the principal gem materials. This book discusses the interesting characteristics of gemstones as the growing consumer market jewelry resulted in increased sales of gem testing instruments. Organized into 12 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the development of the science of gemmology. This text then explains the fundamental qualities necessary in a gem, including color, hardness, specific gravity, crystallography, refractive index, pleochroism, critical angle, luminescence, and absorption spectra. Other chapters consider the organic gem materials, including amber, ivory, coral, tortoiseshell, jet, ebony, and pearl. This book discusses as well the various methods used in the production of man-made gemstones and the commercial use in gem testing. The final chapter deals with the composition of synthetic gemstones. This book is a valuable resource for gemmologists and jewelers. Students who intend to become a qualified gemologist will also find this book extremely useful.

'The Diamond Formula' offers the diamond industry and all interested parties a comprehensive text on synthetic diamonds, joining together the research, achievements, theories, experimental and analytical data by recognized experts in the field, while encompassing a gemmological interpretation. The book offers the average gemmologist, gemmological (or mineralogical) student, or interested party, a concise and easy to decipher overview of the synthesis of diamonds to date. Each of the elements and various topics have at some time been the subject of a lengthy and detailed text in their own right and references are used to ensure that the reader can follow up these leads. The text begins with the history of diamond synthesis, and the theories on which much of the early work was based, before discussing the principles on which the modern processes rely. The following chapters cover the advent of success, commercial applications, synthetic diamond products, producers, gemmological properties and identification of synthetic diamonds. The final section discusses briefly diamond synthesis by CVD and application for this technology. Comprehensive text for a wide market Easy to decipher overview of the synthesis of diamonds Detailed reference section for follow up work
