Agates by Roger Pabian, Brian Jackson, and Peter Tandy

I always loved to learn about gemstones, well my mom got me into them! It's something about the design, the colors, and the powers they possess that intrigues me. I always wondered about them, like where do they come from, how are they made and so many other questions. Therefore, I was happy to have found a book on one well-known type, Agates by Roger Pabian, Brian Jackson, and Peter Tandy. These I have a few of in my collection and was happy to have an idea about the names, colors, created from, and so much more!

Inside, there are even some beautiful Agate shaped pieces, like a frog. The details are stunning, exactly like a frog and yet has the stone Agate being used.I know for many who love gemstones this would really be a winner! It's full of information on the one stone Agate, but if you ever needed to do some research this book could really help. I love the photos, real photos most of all! It's not a fake stone and is a real created from the earth stone that is worn, seen and often mentioned. 

Finally, I really love the information inside. I feel full of knowledge on the stone Agate. It's totally a treasure as the title mentions. Plus, it's not a complicated book for those just getting into gemstones and would like to learn more about Agate.
