Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0971349541, Paperback)

Based on the popular AJM column by Arthur Anton Skuratowicz and Julie Nash, Working with Gemstones: A Bench Jeweler's Guide offers illustrated insights into how to best work on gem-set jewelry. Learn about common enhancements and treatments, how various gems react to heat and pressure, how to modify mountings to accommodate a gem's characteristics, and what tools you should always have close at hand. You'll also find a handy glossary, a guide to tool-specific dangers, and easy-to-read charts on how stones react to abrasives, chemicals, and heat. An invaluable resource, Working with Gemstones will help to ensure you avoid damaging expensive--and sometimes irreplaceable--gems.
