MOGOK : The Valley of Precious Stones

Author : Ho, Kennedy, Executive Editor

The book is also a plea for socially equitable and environmentally sustainable mining, Kennedy Ho added. Mogok has a tradition of small-scale mining operations that are currently under threat from mechanized techniques. The book conveys the beauty of Mogok and its gems. “The photographs taken in the field as well as the laboratory images created using electronic microscopes, reveal an array of unique mineral wonders, including rubies, spinels, peridots, sapphires, and even the mysterious johachidolite, less well-known, but no less resplendent,” Ho said. The team provides insights into their work, including quality assessment and valuation of rubies, sapphires, spinels, peridots and other treasures of Mogok. The unprecedented exploration of the Mogok Valley, made possible by the AIGS, has unearthed fascinating new discoveries, resulting in a new reference work for scientists, devotees of precious stones and travelers seeking a unique experience.
