THE HISTOTY OF CEYLON GEMS

Ceylon’s gem industry has a rich and extensive history. Known as Ratna-Dweepa or Gem Island, the name reflects the abundance of natural riches found there. In fact, Marco Polo himself praised Ceylon for having the finest sapphires, topazes, amethysts, and other precious gems in the world.

Even as far back as the 2nd century, Ptolemy, an astronomer, noted that beryl and sapphire were the foundation of Sri Lanka’s gem industry.

Sailors who visited the island also testified to the exquisite “jewels of Serendib” they brought back. Serendib was the ancient name given to the island by traders from the Middle East and Persia who crossed the Indian Ocean during the 4th and 5th centuries to trade gems from Ceylon in the East. Sri Lanka is geologically ancient, with the majority of its rocks dating back to the Precambrian era, anywhere from 560 million to 2,400 million years ago.

I recently acquired the finest Aquamarine stone from ACRUS GEMS, and I must say, it was the best purchase I have ever made. The prices offered were incredibly attractive. From what I understand, fair trade practices are a significant part of their business, and I sincerely hope that my knowledge is accurate.
