Origin: Sri Lanka

Sapphires of unusually fine quality are found scattered throughout the lush island nation of Sri Lanka, situated just off the southern tip of India. Sri Lankan sapphires come in a wide range of stunning hues, from deep blues to legendary delicate pinks. Local gem miners rely on traditional mining practices that have been employed in Sri Lanka for 2,000 years without environmental damage. Governmental oversight of gem mining in Sri Lanka requires that any new projects undergo a mandatory Environmental Impact Assessment and only low impact mining practices are employed.

Sri Lanka's sapphire miners operate in cooperatives known as karahaula, small groups of artisanal miners that share the costs, labor, and profits from the sale of any gemstones found. Each group is managed by a mine owner who provides food and lodging and pays a weekly allowance to each team member. The Mines and Minerals Act of 1992 prohibits any person under the age of 18 from participating in gemstone mining in Sri Lanka.
