Sri Lanka, also known many a times as Ratna Dveep or the Gem Island, gets this name because of an abundance of gem stones found here. This has been known since age old times, which brought sea-faring traders, merchants, and rulers to this Pearl of the Indian Ocean in search of beautiful colored stones to adorn their crowns and bodies.

80% of the island has been declared as ‘Potential Gem Bearings.’ Sri Lanka possesses the highest density of precious stone deposits in the world. There are over 70 varieties out the known 200 varieties in the world that are found in this island; some of the most well known are the sapphires. Other commonly known stones found in Sri Lanka are Garnet, Zircon, Quartz, Tourmaline, and Topaz among others.
