Very scarce. This is an extensive, annotated study of Arabic mineralogy, based mostly on Tefaschi's treatise on gemstones that appeared about 1240 C.E. The author was an expert in oriental studies and his commentary is authoritative and fully referenced. A valuable work for those interested in Arabic mineralogy and gemology.
