Review This Product
#1 For Any Gemstone CollectorBought both volume 1 and 2 and stopped everything I was doing when they arrived and put my feet up and started reading. I didn't realize how long I was sitting, but pretty soon people were asking "What's for dinner?" She has the most incredible supporting photographs, you'll find yourself saying "That's what it's supposed to look like!" I'm giving this 10 stars! Highly recommend over any other book I've purchased on the topic August 07, 2013

A must have bookThis book is one of the most informative I have read on exotic gems. There are 71 fabulous pages on Tanzanite alone. Renee Newman wrights in language everyone can understand. She includes invaluable information for buying and collecting these stones. She has done all the right research for one stop information. There are Many color photos as well. This book is great for gemstone collectors, buyers and enthusiasts. As an author myself I recommend this book for any learning library. It is definitely top notch. January 29, 2012

Love it -- can't wait for volume 2 !!After reading this book, I realized how much I DIDN'T know about Feldspars. Renee Newman's books are habit-forming; I own quite a few of them, and this one is terrific because of the many photos, the detailed info on exotics (including myths and lore), and the reference section. I absolutely recommend this book and can't wait to see "Exotic Gems, Volume 2" from Renee. She is certainly a top-notch gemologist and author. February 03, 2012
