   ශ්‍රී ලංකාව පිළිබධව මගේ මතය.

අඹ ගෙඩියක හැඩයෙන් යුත් අප මව් බිමෙන් බිහිවන සෑම ද්‍රව්‍යයක්ම ලෝකයේ අගනා ඛ්නිජ සම්පත් වේ.අප කවුරුත් මැණික් හදුනා ගනු ලබන්නේ ඉතා වටිනා ඛ්නිජයක් ලෙසය.එමෙන්ම ශ්‍රී ලංකාවේ ජලය,පස්,මිනිරන්,යපස්,වැලි,මැටි ආදී සියලු ද්‍රව්‍යයන් අපගේ ජිවනොපාය සරිකරවීමට ඉවහල් වේ.

Sri Lanka is one of the five main gem producing countries. South Africa, Brazil, Thailand and Myanmar are the other four major gem producers, National Gem and Jewellery Authority deputy director general Ajith Perera said.
According to him, four percent of the annual exports of Sri Lanka constitute gems and they hope to increase this quantum in the near future. The Deputy Director General was addressing a special press briefing at the Information Department on the recently discovered gem deposits in Kataragama.
“There is a good demand for Sri Lankan Blue Sapphires in the global market. We hope that the gems found in the Thammanna area would be a boost to our Blue Sapphire exports with the resultant benefit to the national economy,” Perera said.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sri Lanka is one of the greatest gem producing countries in the world. In my opinion, the best untreated blue sapphires are coming from Sri Lanka.
Sri Lankan blue sapphires have an evenness of colour and a medium to almost cornflower blue colour.
Sri Lanka also has the best star sapphires in the world. Sapphires from Sri Lanka come in a variety of colour. Colours vary from very light to dark blue to violet-blue, bluish-green, yellow, slightly reddish-orange, brown, nearly opaque black, colourless, pink, violet and the pinky-orange known as padparadscha.
The most valuable colours of course are the cornflower blue colour, reds (known as ruby) and a pinky-orangey colour known as padparadscha.
