About the Author:

Over a long and varied career, Ronald Bonewitz has been a geologist, prospector, miner, and gem cutter, in addition to working as a pilot and flying instructor. Still a consultant, collector, cutter, and dealer in gems, minerals, and fossils, Dr Bonewitz has also written extensively on ancient history and mythology. Other books for DK include Rock and Gem and Nature Guide: Gems.

Review:

As one has come to expect of a Dorling Kindersley publication, it's peppered with beautiful, glossy pictures - the rock, mineral, gem and fossil photographs are of such good quality you feel you could lift them off the page - and is laid out for easy reference. * Geographical *
