First written in 1976 and enjoyed by thousands of Maine gem miners. In 1990 Jeans' daughter Joan reprinted and soon sold out of this very popular book. Because there was such a large demand for more copies, in 2002 Baril Books obtained the rights to republish. This book should be in every mineral collectors library
