New Burma material in town

Since a long time, the only Burmese gemstone present on our Chanthaburi market was ruby, with sporadic apparitions of some other material like jade, blue sapphire and peridot.
Since a few weeks a big pocket of Myanmar peridot found its way to Chanthaburi.
Plenty of clean stones in good color over 10 carats and even some pieces over 40 are available. We still don't know how long this supply will last. But for sure we will see competing soon Chinese cut and local Thai cut material in the 3 to 5 carats range.
Some very nice rubellite cabs lots from the same source are also in town. This milky material is of even and very attractive pinkish red color. Some single stones in big size have been seen.
All our Chanthaburi staff wishes happy Thai New Year (Songkran) to all of our faithful readers
