This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: One of the world's leading experts on gemstones and photomicrography, Eduard Gubelin (1913-2005) acquired an outstanding international reputation from his remarkable collection of precious stones and his scientific contributions. His lifelong study of inclusions in gemstones dramatically altered the field of gemology forever and laid the foundation for the microscopic identification of many new types of gemstones. In addition to his scientific work, Gubelin also amassed a remarkable collection of gemstones, which was bought by the Gemological Institute of America, and he spent his life as a keenly active participant in art and film. Written by several of his family members, The Eduard Josef Gubelin Story delves deeply into Gubelin's life story and explores how his early years laid the foundations for his extraordinary gemologist career, his research, and his legacy.
