The Age of Exploration served as a stepping stone for geographic knowledge. It allowed more people to see and study various areas around the world, which increased geographic study, giving us the basis for much of the knowledge we have today. The effects of colonization still persist as well, with many of the world's former colonies still considered the "developing" world and the colonizers the First World countries, holding a majority of the world's wealth and receiving a majority of its annual income.

Mr. Carlson did an excellent job of putting this book together in an easy to read format. The color plates he included are spectacular. A must for anyone who is into geology and collecting agates.

This book is like eye candy for anyone interested in agates, geology, lapidary and jewelry making. I purchased a copy directly from the author off ebay, and he was even kind enough to sign it. If you can afford it, invest in the hardcover...I have always wanted to photograph and document my rock collection...this book gives me continuing inspiration to collect. I would also recommend it to anyone who wishes to better understand what agates are all about, and what makes particular ones so valuable. You will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful collection of photography on the subject.
