The Curious Lore of Precious Gems
is among George Frederick Kunz’s many publications. The father of American gemology is a hero of mine and was a hero in his time too. When a gorgeous pink stone was discovered in 1902 it was named after the illustrious Tiffany gemologist. American designer Dean Harris has given the old stone new life with his gorgeous bib necklace. I know if I wore it I could channel some of my predecessor’s prolific powers of prose.
