Happy to have found this book

Well written, easy read, introduction to the world of turquoise. I’ve just started my fascination with this mineral/gemstone. Robert’s book has given me a starting point to understanding much about turquoise, helping me to get grounded in all things turquoise. I am ready and excited to use his extensive references to dig deeper and continue on this learning journey to see where it leads.
