Description
 
Patrick Voillot (au); Jack Hawkes (tr). Glittering jewels & precious stones -- diamonds, emeralds, rubies, & sapphires -- have dazzled us since earliest times & have long been treasured for their rarity, symbolic value, divine or magical properties, exotic origins, & incomparable beauty. Sovereigns have coveted them, from the Aztec emperors, whose emeralds were larger than a manís fist, to the shahs of Persia, who sat on thrones encrusted with rubies & diamonds, to the royalty of Europe, whose crowns & scepters were set with stones of great price. The history of precious stones from raw mineral to finely wrought necklace, & from ancient times to today, is a fascinating one, full of legend, mystery, & adventure. Hundreds of color & b&w illustrations. Translated from the French edition.
