Sigrid, do you have a public or university library nearby?  When I live in
Austin, I know there were quite a few books in their libraries about
lapidary and jewelry, as I often did a lot of the research on jewelry-making
for my ex-husband.  Also, some of the jewelry and lapidary shops will have
some books (like Dyers in Austin).

Sometimes, the How-to books are a place to start, as they often have some
history of the craft in the introduction.  If so, look at their
bibliography/references, for the next place to look.  

I thought I had one in my library, but I must have lost it in the divorce.

Keep looking
