Moonstone mine in Srilanka
 
01:51
The beautiful island of Sri Lanka, and home of the highest quality moonstone in the world, lies in the Indian Ocean just off the southern tip of India itself. Gem deposits in Sri Lanka can be divided into two types – the more abundant ‘sedimentary’ deposits caused by the weathering actions of wind and water, and the less common primary deposits found within the bedrock itself. One of the best-known primary gem deposits in Sri Lanka is the large pegmatite vein of moonstone at Meetiyagoda, a small village a few miles from the coast in the south-west of the island. The village boasts 10 mines which have been the most important source for top quality blue moonstone since it was discovered here in 1906.

Sri Lanka,ශ්‍රී ලංකා,Underground Gemstone Mining Ratnapura Sapphires (04)
 
03:28
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.

Sapphire Moonstone mining in Sri Lanka
 
02:15
Sri Lanka’s gem industry has a very long and colorful 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. Ptolemy, the 2nd century astronomer recorded that beryl and sapphire were the mainstay of Sri Lanka’s gem industry. Records from sailors that visited the island states that they brought back “jewels of Serendib”. Serendib was the ancient name given to the island by middle – eastern and Persian traders that crossed the Indian Ocean to trade gems from Sri Lanka to the East during the 4th and 5th century. Sri Lanka, geologically speaking is an extremely old country. Ninety percent of the rocks of the island are of Precambrian age, 560 million to 2,400 million years ago. The gems form in sedimentary residual gem deposits, eluvial deposits, metamorphic deposits, skarn and calcium-rich rocks. Nearly all the gem formations in Sri Lanka are located in the central high-grade metamorphic terrain of the Highland Complex. The gem deposits are classified as sedimentary, metamorphic and magmatic; the sedimentary types being the most abundant. The mineralogy of the gem deposits varies widely with, among others, corundum (sapphire, ruby), chrysoberyl, beryl, spinel, topaz, zircon, tourmaline, garnet being common. Residual deposits are mainly found in flood plains of rivers and streams. The metamorphic types of gems constitute 90% of the gem deposits in Sri Lanka. It has been estimated that nearly 25% of the total land area of Sri Lanka is potentially gem-bearing, making Sri Lanka one of the countries with the highest density of gem deposits compared to its landmass. Ratnapura contains the most gem deposits and derived its name from the gem industry. Ratnapura means “city of gems”. Source: wikipedia

Guerilla Sapphire Mining - Ilakaka, Madagascar
 
06:43
Ilakaka in the centre of the arid, southern plains of Madagascar is a product of an explosion in Sapphire discovery and trade. In 1998 this sleepy town had a population of 40 villagers but now numbers close 60,000. Labourers have migrated in from across Madagascar and traders from around the globe. Madagascar’s sapphires resemble those from Sri Lanka as the two islands were once part of a single geological structure that was torn apart by plate tectonics. Concentrated by ancient rivers and alluvial deposits these stones are now found at a depth of 20-50m below the surface of the desert landscape.. Small, guerrilla mines account for the high frequency of fatalities in the region. Exploratory wells are sunk vertically down, upto 50m, until the sapphire rich gravel is reached. Men, spoil and gravel alike are hoisted and lowered down the wells by make-shift log and rope winches. The mines are dug simply with a sharpened piece of steel rod but without any installation or reinforcement they are liable to collapse. Boys as young as 12 are killed by cave-ins or asphyxiate in the tunnels.

Red Embers Mine "The garnet and graphite experience"
 
06:00
The Red Embers Mine is a PRIVATE mine located near the village of Erving in western Massachusetts. The mine has been in operation for approximately 8 years exclusively by the Baskin family and Jay's Minerals. The exceptional gem quality Almandine Garnet specimens we mine are some of the finest found in the American northeast. The host rock for these unique and unusual garnet specimens is a silvery grey graphite schist. We use a time consuming air abrasion process to meticulously expose each crystal from the graphite matrix. When back lit each garnet seems to glow like the crimson red embers of a burning fire. If you have any questions you can contact Jason @ [email protected] For fine specimens directly from the mine please contact: Jay's Minerals at [email protected] Alan's Quality Minerals at [email protected] Treasure Mountain Mining at www.treasuremountainmining.com Background sounds provided by:Impact Moderato by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100618 Artist: http://incompetech.com/

"Rubies and sapphires from Chimwadzulu, Malawi" by GIA
 
06:02
In this video, you will experience the “warm heart of Africa,” as GIA field gemologists visit Malawi’s Chimwadzulu ruby mine for the very first time. Although this is one of the continent’s oldest-known ruby and sapphire deposits—discovered in 1958—it’s largely unknown to the gem trade or public at large. Malawi is one of the smallest African nations, bounded by Zambia to the northwest, Tanzania to the northeast, and Mozambique to the east, south, and west. The country is separated from Tanzania and Mozambique by the waters of Lake Malawi. “I read about Chimwadzulu a very long time ago…and this is a place I’ve wanted to come to for a very long time,” says GIA Field Gemologist Vincent Pardieu. The deposit’s geology is very complex, he explains, and the mine’s sapphires provide a key to understanding it. Although the Chimwadzulu deposit is known for ruby and orange sapphire, it produces mainly pale green, blue, and yellow sapphire. As always, a core goal of the expedition is to procure samples for GIA’s research programs, but understanding the gems as part of the geology and the mining operation—along with the people who labor to produce it—is also tremendously important. “When you look at the stone, you don’t view it the same way when you have the story of the stone, too,” explains Pardieu. The country is struggling to develop, and ethical stewardship of its gem resources is a part of the solution. Some of the possible benefits to local communities are a hospital and a school funded by the Chimwadzulu mining operation—a consortium between Nyala Mines Ltd. and Columbia Gem House, Inc. Pardieu and his team were able to visit the facility and observe the difference it makes. “In many African countries, the right access to education and health is really a luxury,” remarks Pardieu. “…you’re bringing to these people what is normal for us, but a luxury for them.” They also visited the elementary school, gaining a snapshot of the country’s youth and their boundless potential if Malawi’s resources can be harnessed for the good of all its citizens. This GIA Field Expedition (FE56) took place in September 2014. Besides Pardieu, the participants were cameraman Didier Gruel and field gemologist trainee Stanislas Detroyat.

Sapphire Trading - Ilakaka, Madagascar
 
03:05
Ilakaka in the centre of the arid, southern plains of Madagascar is a product of an explosion in Sapphire discovery and trade. In 1998 this sleepy town had a population of 40 villagers but now numbers close 60,000. Labourers have migrated in from across Madagascar and traders from around the globe. Madagascar’s sapphires resemble those from Sri Lanka as the two islands were once part of a single geological structure that was torn apart by plate tectonics. Concentrated by ancient rivers and alluvial deposits these stones are now found at a depth of 20-50m below the surface of the desert landscape. Every day at 4pm precisely, miners from across the region descend on Ilakaka and the village of Manombe to the North to sell their day’s treasure. The Gem Traders, from Sri Lanka and Thailand, have purchasing posts ranging from simple wooden huts to giant marble palaces. Competing with each other for purchase of the stones the experts are armed with a simple magnifying torch, a water bowl and year’s of experience. The Malagasy miners queue and jostle with each other as they visit different dealers hoping to strike the best cash price. Tensions run high with each stone often representing a week’s labour from 5-25 men. Violence between the miners is common as is the occasional murder and robbery of a trader adding to the Wild-West atmosphere.

Gems that can be found in srilanka (GEM ISLAND)
 
04:29
Sri Lanka lies at the southern tip of India which is located at latitude of 6° – 10° N and longitude of 80° – 82° E. The major part of Sri Lanka is made up of Precambrian crystalline rocks except for a belt of sedimentary rocks along the north-west coast of the country. The Precambrian rocks which covers nearly 90% of Sri Lanka, have been classified into three major lithological units, which are Highland / Southwestern Complex, Vijayan Complex and Wanni Complex. Sri Lanka is well known throughout the world for the large quantity and exquisite variety of its gemstones. These gemstones occur mainly in alluvial gravels found in valley bottoms into which flow tributary hillside streams which carry gem minerals released by weathering form the bed rock sources located at hilltops or hillsides. Apart from the sedimentary formation which carry gemstones some rocks too have been shown to contain gemstones particularly varieties of Corundum. There are also gemstones associated with pegmatite which constituted an important source.

Sri Lanka,ශ්‍රී ලංකා,Ceylon,Guesthouse Veranda Ratnapura
 
00:54
This ancient mansion is a nice guesthouse and the place has a garden arround and is quiet at night. My video snapshot is not showing too much of all this and I was more interested by a huge cockroach which I met somewhere outside. Next time I'll be more fair and show more of the place and its "colonial era" splendor.Sri Lanka,ශ්‍රී ලංකා, Ceylon, Guesthouse Veranda Ratnapura About Ratnapura: Ratnapura (Sinhala: රත්නපුර; Tamil: இரத்தினபுரி) ("City of Gems" in Sinhala and Tamil) is the name of the provincial capital of Sabaragamuwa Province of Sri Lanka and the Ratnapura District in which the town is situated. Some say the modern name is derived from the Portuguese name Rapadura for jaggery, the palm candy produced traditionally in this region, but the more common explanation in Sri Lanka is that it comes from the Sinhala "ratna" meaning gems and "pura" meaning city.[2] Ratnapura is also spelled as Rathnapura. Located some 101 km south east of Colombo, it is the centre of a long-established industry of precious stone mining including rubies, sapphires, and other gems. Apart from gem mining, the town is known for rice and fruit cultivations. Large plantations of tea and rubber surround the town. Tea grown in this region is called low-country tea. There is a well-established tourism industry in Ratnapura. Sinharaja Forest Reserve, Udawalawe National Park, Kitulgala, and Adam's Peak are especially popular among tourists. In 1901, the town of Ratnapura had a population of 4,084, and in 2001, it had increased to 46,309. The population of the Ratnapura district was 1,008,164 in 2001, and this consisted of 86.42% Buddhists and 9.88% Hindus, with the rest of the population being Christians and Muslims.The town is ruled by a municipal council headed by a mayor. The council is elected by popular vote and has 15 seats. There were 29159 registered voters in the 2006 local authorities elections. Health Ratnapura provincial hospital is the largest hospital in the Sabaragamuwa province Which is equipped with two surgical units two medical units ,an orthopedic unit,two gyn and obs units two paediatrics units an ENT unit,An neurology unit,A rheumatology unit,a dermatology unit,Psychiatric unit and a cardiology unit.It also a post graduate training center.[edit] Gem tradeThe people of the town depends on the gem trade. Gem pits are a common site in the surrounding area. Most of the large-scale gem businessmen of Sri Lanka operate from Ratnapura. There are considerable numbers of foreign gem traders in town too. Among the foreign traders, Thai (Thailand) traders are in the majority. Every day, large number of traders from suburbs and other towns gather in the town centre to sell or buy gemstones. Large-scale merchants collect gemstones from locals and sell them in the international market. Some traders go out of the city to buy gems. This includes neighboring towns like Kalawana, Bogawantalawa, and Ela-era. After the discovery of world-class alluvial sapphire deposits in the valley of Ilakaka in Madagascar, many Ratnapura merchants travel out of the country to Madagascar to buy gems.AgricultureThe town's agricultural industry is also well developed. Large plantations of tea and rubber surround the town. Although rice fields also used to be a common sight around the town, rice cultivation presently faces an uncertain future in Ratnapura because many farmers are giving up their rice cultivation and switching to gem mining which is a more productive way of earning money. If many farmers give up on agriculture, it would be harder for farmers to harvest enough food for them and to trade in the markets. Many delicious fruits like mango and papaya) and vegetables are grown as market products.TransportRatnapura is located in the A4 Highway which connects capital Colombo to Kalmunai in the Eastern Province. Another Highway A8 connects the town with Panadura in the western coast of Sri Lanka. During the British occupation of the Island, narrow gauge train track was laid in 1912 connecting Colombo - Avissawella - Ratnapura - Opanayake however line Avissawella onwards removed in 1976. Thus reducing the mode of transportation to road. In 2006, construction started on a new broad gauge railway line to Awissawella only.ClimateRatnapura is located in the south-western part of Sri Lanka, the so-called wet zone. The town receives rainfall mainly from south-western monsoons from May to September. During the remaining months of the year, there is also considerable precipitaion due to convective rains. The average annual precipitation is about 4,000 to 5,000 mm. The average temperature varies from 24 to 35 °C, and there are high humidity levels.The city is above 21m from sea level.

"Vato Masina II": Return to Bemainty 8 months after "Vato Masina I"
 
10:41
In September 2016 a major sapphire rush took place near Bemainty village close to Ambatondrazaka in Madagascar. The discovery soon attracted tens of thousands of miners from all around Madagascar. Field Gemologist Vincent Pardieu, an independent consultant with a passion for both gemology and conservation, visited the new deposit in Feb 2017 while the rush was already ongoing for 6 months and published "Vato Masina I". Eight months after in October 2017, he returned there to continue gemological research for the DANAT (Bahrain Institute for Pearls & Gemstones) and to witness the evolution of mining one year after the beginning of the rush. The number of miners has reduced seriously from about 20,000 or 30,000 to about 500 in the main mining site called "Tananarivo", the mining was now taking place in new areas in the west called "Ambudipesho" and "Madico" where about 1,000 people were mining greenish blue and yellow stones of a quality much lower than in "Tananarivo". The main issue with that rush is that it is taking place in a protected area located between 3 national parks. Several alarming articles in the mainstream media were published blaming miners for the disparition of lemurs and their habitat. Well first we learned that the miners did not destroyed the forest, the discovery was made in an area that was burned by farmers practicing "slash and burn" type farming called "Taavy". There was enough wood on the floor for the miners to focus more on mining than on chopping trees. Visiting twice the site we could witness that unlike what was reported by the media the trees had not suffered much during that period of mining and we were happy to hear lemurs everywhere we were going, meaning that they were still alive. The main issue for conservation being in our opinion the siltation process resulting from gem mining, but well the mainstream media obviously didn't visited the area to enquiry about what was going on but obviously more to get some images to fit on a story they had already written before to visit the area. This is sad as there would have been some interesting true stories to tell about that sapphire rush. For more info: See the complete article about the area published in the Spring 2017 issue of InColor Magazine: http://www.gemstone.org/incolor/Incolor35/index.html#24 See also the complete study on that new material that we published as a pdf on GIA website: Pardieu V., Vertriest W., Weeramonkhonlert V., Raynaud V., Atikarnsakul U., Perkins R.

Beautiful Yellow Sapphire (Cylone)
 
00:16
Yellow Sapphire Stone ('Pukhraj Stone' in Hindi) is a beautiful yellow gemstone variety of the mineral corundum. It is one of the hardest gemstone with a Mohs index of 9.0 and specific gravity ranging from 3.95 to 4.03. It is mined in Ceylon (Sri Lanka), Burma, Thailand, Madagascar, and a few other countries (see: Yellow Sapphire Properties) Who can wear Pukhraj Stone ? In Western Astrology, Yellow Sapphire Stone is the birthstone for Sagittarius (22 Nov - 21 Dec). In Indian Astrology, Pukhraj Stone strengthens Jupiter (Brihaspati) and is hence, the rashi ratna for Sagittarius ('Dhanush') and Pisces ('Meen'). (refer: Yellow Sapphire Benefits) How can we find real yellow sapphire Gemstone ? For astrological purpose, Ceylonese Yellow Sapphire is considered best and should preferably be worn in Gold or Panchdhatu (we recommend a higher quality stone as opposed to spending money on Gold, if budget is tight). An unheated and untreated pukhraj stone with higher clarity, less internal inclusions, and pure colour is considered best for such purpose. Citrine Stone and Yellow Topaz Stone are considered astrological substitutes for Yellow Sapphire, but are said to have far less power.

The details about the people in the video are very interesting as are the assertions of certain individuals entering the mine as "uninvited rockhounds" while showing a picture of a young Ed Swoboda.

http://hollywoodhaunter.com In this video you will see an Old Western Water Wheel Gone Wild! We continue to set up the kids gem and gold panning mining troth and water wheel. When finished the area will be a gold mining attraction for children. 40 kids will be able to pan for gems and fake gold nuggets when complete. The system runs off two separate pumps. One for the tower to the water wheel and another from the water wheel to the panning sluice. Things get wet when the water wheel is tested for the first time. Our tent takes a hit from the wind, and Jeana chases down some local wildlife! Join us as we dig ourselves out of this pickle!

This is a "sizzle reel" of our recent "stone safari" in Kenya at the Tsavo West National Park. We visited several mines over 7 days, got in lots of trouble and had a blast! All of the footage is from our trip.No stock footage was used in this clip! Thanks to the amazing guys over at Manley Media. The song we sampled is Ruby Soho from the band Rancid.
