KIRKUS REVIEW

Good reportage on a subject that has wider interest than merely the industry itself. This tells all about diamonds, their mineralogy, geography, mining, cutting, selling, design, legends. There are instructions on buying. There's information as to their part in industry. There is the shift to the USA of the center of the trade. Factual information interspersed with stories of famous stones.
