Burma Ruby. A History of Mogok's Rubies from Antiquity to the Present introduces you to the legendary rubies from Mogok, Burma, and the mine itself. You will meet the men and women who owned the mines, those who worked the mines, and those who fought over Mogok's fabled wealth. You will become familiar with some of Burma's most notable gemstones and will learn to appreciate the qualities of fine rubies and sapphires.
S.K.Samuels draws upon his vast personal experience of Burma and his long-standing professional involvement in the gem trade to describe the country of Burma, its celebrated gemstones, and the Mogok mine. He presents information on the properties of Burma's rubies (and sapphires) and on the gem trade itself. Later chapters include heretofore unpublished statistics about historical and recent production and sales of rubies in Burma.
Burma Ruby includes numerous photos, maps, graphs, charts, and statistics. The book will interest professional gemologists and gem traders as well as generalists fascinated fy southeast Asia, Burma, gems, and jewelry.
