In his book, 'Gemstones: Quality and Value, Volume 1', Yasukazu Suwa states that current annual gem mining production is about one-thirtieth of total past production. Considering that mined gemstones can potentially re-enter the market every 30 years (or so), he estimates that a volume close to that of newly mined gems re-enters the market every year. Saying this, new gemstone deposits are still being discovered (Mozambique ParaÍba Tourmaline) and old deposits can start producing again (Russian Alexandrite)

This definitive work is the first of its kind, an introduction to the quality and beauty of gemstones that assists in judging their value and price. Though there are many publications that deal with the mineralogical properties of gemstones, books that discuss the essence of their beauty, how to verify their quality, and how to judge their value are almost non-existent.

Chapter 2 discusses gemstones in the context of their relationship with people, from mining, cutting, and manufacturing, to buying and selling, wearing, and secondary markets.

While simple enough for a layperson to understand, with a glossary of gemological and trade terms, the concepts introduced in this book are powerful enough to be useful to members of the gemstone and jewelry industry, whether they be cutters, wholesalers, appraisers, or retailers.

Excellent Book! I wish there were more books like this. It gives top quality photos with clear descriptions, color, and pricing, of Gemstones. I could spend hours reading it and comparing it to my own gemstones.

Kudos to Mr. Suwa for researching and preparing such detailed grading and valuation charts and photos for Gemstones, Diamonds and Jewellery. His 3 book set is worth the money if you are involved in the jewellery trade or just a lover of gems. Prices for valuation have changed since publication, but still very usefull. Great reference set.
