This vintage book contains a collection of articles on the creation and composition of diamonds. The contents of this volume originated from a series of lectures delivered by Henry Carvil Lewis, M.A., F.G.S., which were later edited and arranged by Professor T. G. Bonney. "Papers and Notes of the Genesis and Matrix of the Diamond" will appeal to those with an interest in mineralogy and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "Paper Read in 1886", "On a Diamond-Bearing Peridotite and on the History of the Diamond", "The Matrix of the Diamond", "Paper Read in 1887", "Kimberlite From the Unites States", and "Note". Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on metal work. First published in 1897.
