MURRAY, JOHN. A MEMOIR ON THE DIAMOND
London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown & Green, 1831. 61pp.

This is an interesting book on the diamond written for the general public. Of interest today is the discussion on colored diamonds and the frontispiece illustration which shows a diamond guage with a drawing of the faceted diamond and its diameter for each carat. This is drastically different from today's proportions due to the modern brilliant cut and is useful for those working with antique jewelry.
