Every treasure needs a treasure map. Therefore, if you’re looking for precious jewels, you’ll need to be equipped with the right gemstone books.

The Gemstone Detective Book series is the holy grail you’re looking for. Authored by expert gemmologist, Kim Rix, each book is designed to turn you into a gem-finding sleuth. Our books target specific countries and contain detailed descriptions of a stone’s appearance, composition and origin.

Each book is highly visual and uniquely equipped to provide you with a ground-level view of purchasing or acquiring gemstones. Every description is supplemented with stunning photographs to help you envision the true beauty of the gems. Additionally, by using a non-jargon approach, you’re only provided with the language required to help you feel confident and knowledgeable. All the books within the series can be easily digestible regardless of your level.

These gemstone books are designed with the reader in mind. The series is divided into parts according to a gemstone’s common location. You can explore the gems within your own country, or pack up an index of every gem you can come across on your travels. You’ll also be provided with a buying guide that will allow you to communicate with vendors and other collectors of the region. Not to mention, help you avoid frequent and unfortunate incidents regarding sales or trades. Buying right is the best cost-based decision you can make; therefore a little insight can go a long way.
