    Default Trustworthy book

    Hello,

    As I am starting to get into gemstone settings more and more, I am wondering if there is a recommended gemstone book that I can buy ? I'd like to get one that explains the finer details like how to spot a fake....The reason for this ,is I was offered a Pearl brooch the other day and after asking someone who is far more experienced than me, he advised me that they were high quality fakes.

    I told the seller, who then told me that he remembered the stones were not real ...he forgot to tell me when he offered it for sale.

    Many thanks

    Skie

    I like this one -
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gem-Identif.../dp/0997014555

    But I'm not sure that I remember it having anything about organics in it.

    I looked it up on Amazon...It looks pretty good. From what it says, it is suitable for people like me who have only got the basics covered. Thank you
