    • A review: The History of Pearls in the Gulf of California, Mexico PART 2
      by CortezPearls
      The arrival of the Iberian Conquerors

      The Native Nations had no real interest in establishing a commercial venture in pearl fishing and we understand little to nothing of the way they fished for pearls, since most of the information was either lost or destroyed during the conquest of Mexico. The rich plunder of the Conquistadores was sent to Spain and later dispersed all over Europe. The most significant information we have on the subject comes from the period of colonization of northwestern...

    • The French Blue
      by WayneCMS
      By Richard Wise I was fortunate enough to get an early Kindle edition of Richard Wise's newest masterpiece The French Blue. I also own a copy of Wise's Secrets of the Gem Trade, and it is one of the very few gem books that I've read cover to cover, not just skipping ahead to the sections about pearls. The French Blue is a completely different kind of work. It is a novel that begs to be read slowly, but once one becomes entranced in the story, it is nearly impossible to put down. Not for the f...
