For goldsmiths, collectors, jewelry-makers, investors, retailers and consumers.

The trade of gemstones is a highly specialized and often secretive business. Using The Jeweler's Directory of Gemstones, written by an expert gemstone dealer and designer, will provide any consumer with the insider knowledge needed to make accurate judgments of gemstones, to recognize low- and high-quality stones, and to make a good buy rather than a bad one.

Each full-color spread is packed with concise text, annotated drawings and beautiful photographs, including a showcase of virtuoso jewelry designs. Great for informed consumers, the book includes:

  • Sources and grading
  • Traditional and modern settings
  • Cutting and faceting
  • Designing a special setting
  • Gemstone groups
  • Appraising, buying and handling gemstones
  • Diamond types and pearls
  • Spotting synthetics and fakes.

Here is a sampling of the practical insider information in this book:

  • Using a loupe to examine a stone
  • Understanding laser cutting and carving
  • Identifying synthetic diamonds
  • Buying at gem fairs and from dealers
  • Cleaning and storing stones.

No other book has this kind expert advice -- up-to-date, clearly presented and fully illustrated -- on evaluating and using gemstones.

Use the crystals in meditation, journaling, contemplation and guidance, by placing it on your body, carrying in your pocket, bag, or by placing it near you on your night table or work space. Read into the message and meaning behind the crystal, look at it, and absorb the positive energy from it.

How to Clean Crystals

    • Soak in water (but not Malachite, Lapis, Pyrite, Selenite, Tourmaline or Turquoise as they will get chalky)
    • Place in moonlight or sunlight to clean and charge (but not Amethyst as it will dull)
    • Place in presence of candle light
    • Cover with sea salt for 24 hours
    • Clear using Sage/Palo Santo
    • Place around Tibetan Singing Bowl or Bells while using them
    • Bury in sand, soil or brown rice over night
    • Lightwork – connect to Divine light and "visualize" a clearing light getting rid of negative energy and charging your crystals
    • Place on top of Selenite logs to charge and clear other crystals
    • Pyramid shapes clear and charge crystals
