This book is a supplement of the book "Peru – Paradise of Minerals” (Hyršl et al., 2011). It is divided into three parts. The first deals with stones used in antiquity, especially those found in archaeological excavations. The second, largest part of the book deals with precious and ornamental stones which are being mined and used recently. The third part deals with faceted gemstones, which are very rare in Peru. And finally, the reader can find the bibliography as well as a summary of gemological properties of the most important stones.
