CRYSTAL CLEAR: The Story of Diamonds by Victor Argenzio

CRYSTAL CLEAR: The Story of Diamonds

Email this review


Jeweller Argenzio tells ""students"" everything they always wanted to know about diamonds, as evidenced by the questions he solicited in ""a number of schools throughout the country."" Thus tapped, their curiosity is but bluntly rewarded, in shallow short answers on how diamonds were formed and where; how they are measured, priced, recovered, cut, and used in industry; and who has purchased or stolen some of the more famous gems (Hope, Orloff, etc.). It's all outlined in a pamphlet-like 30 pages (51 with the promo-file photos) that won't cut much ice.
