From 1942, a first volume pocket-sized adaptation of the original Book of Color includes 19 color charts, separated by clear Mylar sheets in a 6 ring binder.

While colored diamonds have been cherished throughout time, it wasn’t until the late 1970’s/early 1980’s that they began to capture the gem industry and consumer’s attention.

What is forensic soil analysis?
Forensic soil analysis is used by forensic soil experts and police forensic investigators to provide evidence to help police solve crime. In major crimes with no fingerprint or DNA evidence or reliable witness testimony, soil evidence can help police target their enquiries towards a particular suspect or location. Soil evidence can be even more valuable when it enhances other supporting evidence.
Visiting the School and Museum in Nivín, Peru
The community of Nivín is located about 25 km from the city of Casma on the north coast of Peru. The agricultural community is surrounded by massive archaeological sites that date from 200 B.C. to A.D. 1200. In the summer of 2015, my colleague, Elizabeth Cruzado Carranza and I were invited to visit the small school and museum in Nivín. The invitation was made by a teacher at the school, Professor Gustavo Valencia Tello. He integrates the archaeological resources of the area into the school curriculum and museum to teach students about the importance of their cultural heritage. read more »
