Gem deposits are rare because in general the conditions that promote their formation are unusual and thus worthy of scientific study. Recently, modern geological and analytical techniques have been applied to gem occurrences in Canada and elsewhere, and the models and understanding of their formation are being radically altered.
This volume looks at gemstones from a geological perspective and reviews the current understanding of diamond, ruby, sapphire, jade and emerald deposits and the lesser-known coloured gems.
