Description

New Zealand Gemstones. When the rock-hunting, gem-polishing hobby hit New Zealand its devotees were lucky: this country, while producing no fully precious stones, has a rich range of semi=precious stone to delight the collector. Agate, amethyst, aventurine, bloodstone, carnelian, chalcedony, citrine, chert, garnet, jasper, obsidian, onyx, common opal, quartz, crystal, rhodonite, sard, serpentine; all these may be found and worked. And there are New Zealand's special price - greenstone, or nephrite; and the paua shell of a thousand lovely colours. The dust jacket has a light curl across the top edge and some small spot stains but the book remains in a very tidy condition.
