Further Reading on Diamonds

The literature of the diamond is very extensive, and scattered through many works. Its history in ancient times is given by Pinder, De Adamante, Berlin, 1829 ; its general character in treatises on mineralogy and on precious stones—of the latter those by Jeffries, London, 1757 ; Mawe, ib. 1831; Emmanuel, ib. 1865; and Streete, ib. 1877 ; with the Edelsteinkunde of Kluge, Leipsic, 1860, and of Schrauf, Vienna, 1869, may be mentioned. More special are Murray, Memoir on the Diamond, London, 1831; Petzholdt, Beiträge zur Natur de. Diamanten, Dresden, 1842; Goeppert, Ueber Einschlüsse in D., Haarlem, 1864; and many papers in the journals and transactions of scientific societies. For its mode of occurance may be consulted: -- in India, Heyne’s Tracts, London, 1814; Ritter’s Erdkunde, Asien, vol. iv.; and many papers by Voysey, Adam, Franklin, Blandford, and others; in Brazil, Mawe’s Travels, London, 1812; Eschwege, Claussen, Spix and Martius, Gardner, Tschudi, &c.; for the Ural, Rose’s Reise, vol. i., but with much general information; for Australia, Liversidge, in Jour. Geol. Society; for the Cape, many papers in the Journals of Geol. Society and the Society of Arts, and in the Geological Magazine, by R. Jones, Tennant, Dunn, Maskelyne, Flight, and Stow; and by Cohen in Leonhard and Geinet’z Jahrbuch. (J. NI.)
