At the end of my chapter, there is a table providing names and gems that correlate with each other. Should I read the table? Or do I leave it unmentioned like other illustrations?

Please read the table.

Thank you, Joan! I suddenly have a whole bucket of listening to do; I'll get to this sometime later this evening, probably. :)

On page 244 there is a chart that gives the translation for nine gems in Sanskrit, Burmese, Chinese and Arabic. Do you want me to read the chart? I have no familiarity with these languages and can only attempt a phonetic pronunciation.

I don't think you need to. It's not even referenced in the text, as far as I can see.
