This gem buying trip is for non-professionals i.e. gem collector hobbyists and jewellery connoisseurs. You will have the opportunity to access Mogok’s legendary ruby, sapphire and spinel mines. You will gain an invaluable insight into the region’s history, local culture and we will try to give you an experience of mining (washing and sifting the gem gravels).
In addition, you will be taken to the daily gemstone markets, visit a Goldsmith, watch gemstones being cut and polished and, visit some of Mogok’s finest gem-painting artists.
But, not wishing to spoil all the surprises, this five nights / six days adventure trip includes so much more than that! It will be an adventure of a lifetime!
