    Default Kasumi Pearl Book

    Is there a good book you would recommend on the history of Kasumi Pearls?

    I do plan on buying Elizabeth Strack's, Pearls, does anyone know if there is information in there?

    Pages 417-419 of Strack's book are about Kasumi pearls.

    There is also information on these pearls in Renee Newman's book, Pearl Buying Guide 6th edition:
