Another handy reference book from Bards & Sages. As with Elemental Metals, gemstone's elemental alignments, availability of the gemstone and some information (such as how the stone may usually be used as a luck charm for example) is provided as well. Very handy for item creation or for adding a little "extra" information/color/etc. as you like. Definitely a time-saver for the GM who needs detail but who hasn't got the time to do the research on their own. Each pictured gem is shown in one of a variety of formats (either cut and set in jewelry, tumbled/polished or raw). Ideally I would have liked to have seen two pictures per gem, one each as raw and finished. If you liked Elemental Metals, I'm certain you will enjoy this too.
