Gemstone Books for Travel

Every treasure needs a treasure map. Therefore, if you’re looking for precious jewels, you’ll need to be equipped with the right gemstone books. Through this book series, Kim details her experiences for all those who want to follow in her footsteps.


Whether you’re a novice, collector or gemmologist, it’s easy to get confused between stones if you don’t have the knowledge. The Gemstone Detective book series is the holy grail you’re looking for. Authored by expert gemmologist, Kim Rix, each book is designed to turn you into a gem-finding sleuth.


The books focus on gemstones found within that country and contain detailed descriptions of a gem's appearance, fun facts and how to care for your gem.  Also designed to be a travel guide, we've also included some gemstone-hunting places to visit like museums, tourist attractions and shops. Like a little black book, you'll also find Kim's recommendations and trusted places to buy.
