Moonstone Mines

Moonstone, the talismanic pearly white gem that is a favourite of lovers, travellers and apothecaries, was much prized by the Romans, who thought it was magically formed from moonlight. Although found throughout the world, the biggest and best examples are mined right here in Sri Lanka, and the MSM mine and workshop in Ambalangoda is a must-visit for anyone interested in bespoke jewellery. As well as seeing a working mine in full-scale operation, you can watch the cutters and polishers at work, and browse the extensive showrooms, where moonstone and other gems are on display.
