Other well-known gems found in Sri Lanka include Amethyst, Citrine, Spinel, Almandine Garnet, Rhodolite, Hessonite (Gomedha), Topaz, Tourmaline, Zircon, Moonstone and Aquamarine. Sri Lanka produces more than 50 gem varieties, the largest number for any single country in the world.
We at E.W. Balasuriya source our gems directly from mine owners, where we have longstanding relationships spanning a number of generations. All gems are tested and checked by our gemologists before it enters our inventory. Once the raw gem stones are with us, it is cut in our in-house lapidary where we have experienced lapidarists who know what shape, form and style of cut will best suit each stone. The cutting and polishing reveals the magical luster, colour and beauty of the gem stone, which after rechecking at our laboratory, enters the showroom.
