    [synopsis] => Gem Identification Made Easy is the first and only book that explains in non-technical terms how to identify diamonds and colored gems, and how to separate natural gems from imitations, treated stones, synthetics, and look-alikes. The books approach is direct and practical, and its style easy to understand. In fact, with this highly accessible guide, anyone can begin to master gem identification.
