 What a wonderful Gem of a book. I have lost count how many times I have been to Thailand on Holiday and this book is a wonderful find if you’re visiting this beautiful country, especially if you would like to purchase gems.

I wish I have this book years ago before I travel to Colombo. The book is easy to read and contains key information for a newbie to know before they buy anything in the tourist location.

As a graduate gemologist, I was glad to see factual but easy to understand information about gems.  A first time visitor to Thailand, I felt more confident while gem shopping in Chanthaburi.
