Gem Minerals of Idaho

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press

Gem Minerals of Idaho, designed for beginners and for those collectors visiting Idaho for the first time, it is a guide to some of the countless collecting areas of the state. It is not a textbook of mineralogy and, so far as possible, avoids technical terminology. However, it does contain information of general value on the physical and optical characteristics of minerals, as well as facts concerning history, lore, and fashioning of many of the gems.

Synopsis:

Perhaps no other part of the world has experienced more gem mineral-forming forces than Idaho. The geology of the region makes it a rock-hound's paradise. John Beckwith's book is the perfect guide for beginners or visiting gem collectors.

About the Author

A Graduate Gemologist of the Gemological Institute of America, and holding an M.A. in English, John A. Beckwith is a professor with multi-faceted talents in both the sciences and the humanities.
