Synopsis: This book is devoted entirely to diamond inclusions in all its known natural characteristics. The first one hundred and seventeen pages define external and internal inclusions, describing each variety with numerous full color photomicrographs. What makes this work outstanding is the section in which inclusions are tracked from the rough to the cut and how the integrity of the diamond can be compromised by the depth and position of inclusions that remain. Additionally, an entire section is devoted to the diamond manufacturing process and its relationship to inclusions. In this area inclusions are examined with regards to heat, pressure, directional rotation, and other mechanical influences. Inclusions trapped in diamonds are full of information that in many cases is still to be scientifically interpreted. This book takes us into the fascinating world of micro-inclusions giving us fresh insight in one of nature's most sought after gems.

About the Author: The author Mr. Nizam Peters has spent over four years primarily photographing and documenting the varieties of diamond inclusions in this current work. He is the author of several other books on diamonds and the director of the American Institute of Diamond Cutting, an internationally recognized school, dedicated to teaching the art of diamond cutting and rough diamond grading. Mr. Peters has been active in the industry for over thirty-six years from diamond mining operations to retailing. He is master a diamond cutter, versed in all aspects of manufacturing and is a specialist in polishing fancy cuts and fancy colored diamonds.
