Sri Lanka is famous for its beautiful gemstones. Ratunapura is a major gemstone production centre, with mining sites, cutting and polishing factories, gem museums and jewellery shops.
We have teamed up with a local gem mining company to offer you a tour that allows you to experience gem mining which is not normally possible.
We invite you to find your own special gemstone.
