A hobby backed by centuries of tradition, amateur gem cutting remains popular today. Once a completely unskilled beginner himself, Captain John Sinkankas never forgot his struggles in learning how to cut and polish gemstones without the benefit of an instructor. With his own experience in mind, he wrote Gem Cutting to make it possible for others to teach themselves how to do every type of lapidary work without having to attend classes.

Sinkankas also advises on selecting and buying rough gemstones. A section on the description and treatment of gemstones has been expanded in this second edition to include more species and accommodate recent information on each.

Captain John Sinkankas (1915-2002) dedicated his life to the study of earth sciences after his retirement from the US Navy. Winner of the Desert Magazine Literature Premium Award, Sinkankas authored a number of books on gemstones and published over 100 articles on lapidary subjects. He was a certified gemologist of the American Gem Society with memberships to the Mineralogical Society of America, New York Mineralogical Club, San Diego Mineral & Gem Society, and several other regional gem and mineral groups.

   There are three terms that have relevance to carving and lapidary working of rocks and minerals, these are rock hardness, mineral hardness, and mineral fracture toughness. These three terms have different meanings and are often confused and interchanged in modern alternative literature on the subject of the carving and lapidary working of rocks and minerals by the ancient Egyptians.

   Rock hardness is a term used in geology to denote the cohesiveness of a rock and is usually expressed as its compressive fracture strength. Terms such as hardrock and softrock are used by geologists to distinguishing between igneous/metamorphic and sedimentary rocks, respectively. These terms originated from historical mining terms, reflecting the methods needed to economically mine an ore deposit. For example, a hardrock needs to be mined with explosives and a softrock can be mined with hand tools, such as pick and shovel.

    i) Decreasing porosity in rocks increases the surface area of grain contacts.
    ii) Decreasing the size of mineral grains in the rock increases surface area of grain contacts.
    iii) The surface area of equant or irregular grains is greater than that of angular grains.
