Sri Lanka’s gem industry has a very long and colourful history. Sri Lanka was affectionately known as Ratna-Dweepa which means Gem Island. The name is a reflection of its natural wealth. Marco Polo wrote that the island had the best sapphires, topazes, amethysts, and other gems in the world.
This rough was found right during our mining trip in May 2017. Video by Ruwanpura Gems. Rough sapphires in various sizes and qualities come straight from the ground right in front of our eyes while shooting this video. Ratnapura is one of the major active mining areas in Sri Lanka. It produces sapphire in many colors, ruby, spinel, tourmaline, alexandrite and other gemstones. Large-scale mechanized mining allows to excavate big pits and work through tons of soil.

Gem mining in Sri Lanka gets many people employed, they work hard day by day to make a living and develop strong muscles. Gem-quality rough is still very hard to produce. Most of rough undertakes some kind of treatment (geuda, heat, beryllium, etc)...

The Natural Sapphire sources its sapphires from two main deposits located in Madagascar and Sri Lanka. Today we have a well established secondary office in the heart of the gem market in Ratnapura, Sri Lanka. This location is home of our main gem buying and mining operation. In both Sri Lanka and Madagascar, our sapphires are mined in an environmentally responsible manner. We continue to travel the world in search of the finest sapphires that nature can provide. http://www.TheNaturalSapphireCompany.com/Education2/sapphire-origins-sources/sapphire-mining/ http://www.TheNaturalSapphireCompany.com
Here's a look at some of the mining activity in Ratnapura in the local rivers.
http://www.thenaturalsapphirecompany.com/ Here is a small scale miner who works his land to find gems. It's tedious hard labor, yet over years of work the return brings in a decent financial return. Mining in Sri Lanka is equal to farming in other tropical 3rd world countries. Mining is a way of life for these people.
This is what a small-scale family mining looks like in Sri Lanka. An old man and a boy are washing the gravel together near their house in the jungle. A chance of finding a gem-quality rock is very low but still they can spot a nice sapphire or garnet and earn living for their family. Elahera (Elahara) is a famous historical mining area in Sri Lanka that produced the finest blue sapphires in the 80s with the top prized royal blue color and velvety Kashmir-like texture. Elahera is a beautiful destination for photography and enjoying the wild serene nature, too. Добыча драгоценных камней на Шри-Ланке. Месторождение Элахера.
Gemstone mining in Sri Lanka, Ratnapura area. Digging underground for Sapphires and Rubies in the special layer. The tunnels are stabilized by wood, bamboo and leaves and must be emptied of water all the time with large pomps run by diesel engines. The sand or gravel containing the gems is filled in bags and has to be lifted up out off the underground tunnel. Than the sand is poured simply on the ground and inspected by the well trained eyes of the gem searcher.
http://www.thenaturalsapphirecompany.com/ Here I give gem washing a try. It's hard work! You need to be very patient and have a lot of hope. Notice the mounds of earth surrounding the washing pool, endless hours of washing is done in the hopes to find a few gems!
