There are quite a few out there that are books about stones and faceting, but to start with I would recommend that you keep it simple. So here is a list of commonly available books and some comments on them.

Gemstones of the World by Walter Schumann This is not an expensive book, and while it does not go into great depth, it has a wealth of good information as well as good pictures on stone types and mineralogical information. I highly recommend it. It gives the new cutter, step by step cutting instructions along with pretty good drawings, while cutting. I recommend this one. Unlike most other books I cover every thing a beginner needs to know to start to facet.

Including equipment lists and step by step instructions. I of course recommend my books. It is definately dated, but some of the basic information is still good and people use this one for a reference. This is not a good book for a beginner if some dealer says it is he has not read it , but it is one you might want later. I use it as a reference once and a while. I really do not recommend it. Glen and Martha Vargas are also well known for publishing a series of design books.

Quite a few of their designs are considered classics and the design books are interesting to look through. However, there are mistakes in some of the designs and most of them can be very hard to cut because of the old style instructions, and truthfully the material is just dated. I do not recommend these design books for a beginner. But when you become a competent faceter they might be worth looking into. Gram Faceting by Jeff Graham This is my original book of designs 50 plus , along with basic cutting information and dividers in a 3-ring binder.

The designs are all proof cut and mostly set up for a 96 index and do not require any angle adjustments because the designs are optimized for specific cutting material stones. These ready-to-use designs are organized by recommended material — No transposing required. All are ray-traced, test cut, and proven. There are currently nine 9 additional design sets of 42 designs each available;. Beyond The Glitter by Gerald L.

Wykoff, G. This book is not one I really recommend, if you can find it in a used book store for a couple of dollars, it might be worth buying. There is some decent information in it, but the book is very dated, and not all that well organized. Also, there were some miss prints on the designs there are only a few designs , along with some information that is not as accurate as it could be. I do not really recommend this book, unless you just want something to read.

Master Faceting by Gerald L. This is another book I really do not recommend, if you can find it in a used book store for a couple of dollars, it might be worth buying. Master Gem Polishing by Gerald L. A lot of the information in this is general and not about faceting. There is some decent information general, not a lot of faceting in it, but the book is very dated, and not all that well organized. The information covered is pretty much the same as several of his other books. There is some decent information in it, but the book is very dated, it does have some interesting information in it.

Not a lot on faceting, more general lapidary than anything. Hughes This is an expensive book, it has a wealth of good information as well as good pictures on stone types and mineralogical information. I find it to be a very good reference on Sapphire and their treatment.

I recommend it. Facet Cutters Handbook by Edward J. If you can find one cheap in a used bookstore it is a good starting place. I recommend it for the price.
