Where Are Gemstones Mined?

Gemstones are among some of the most popular items around right now! The demand for certain stones like diamond, emerald, and ruby have been present in our lives since ancient times while other stones like moldavite and hematite have seen a more recent uptick in demand. In either case the fact remains that we are obsessed with gemstones! These stones have been used in everything from rings to pendants to earrings to bracelets and even lamps! But where do these gemstones come from? Today we try and answer some of your questions about gemstone mining and where these amazing stones come from!


Where are gemstones mined?


The short answer to this is all over the world! Gemstone mines are a vast network that cover the globe. There are spots where certain gemstones are found more easily and we will try and cover this here. For example, the largest ruby mine in the world is the Montepuez ruby mine in north eastern Mozambique. Not only is this the largest ruby mine to date but it also boasts some of the oldest rubies on record, some of them being formed 500 million years ago! Alternatively, the most opal in the world is mined at the Cooper Peddy mine in Australia. Interestingly, this mining community is semi subterranean and even though it produces the most opal in the world there are no big companies that work the site but rather locals use a variety of mining processes on their own small plots. There is also tanzanite mined in Tanzania, jade in Myanmar, and lapis lazuli in Afghanistan where the locals there have been mining since the Neolithic period!


How are gemstones mined?


There are a variety of methods to mine gemstones, some newer and some that haven’t changed much in thousands of years. We will cover the basic three methods in this section.


Underground mining:

In underground mining shafts and holes are dug into the earth to recover ores or gemstones. These underground miners use techniques like tunneling, chambering, and block caving. This is probably the method of mining that most people are familiar with.

Open Cast Mining:

This is a method of mining that is most often used when extracting gemstones like diamond or gold ore. These mines start when gemstones are found relatively close to the surface and the soil is thin. Then miners will dig straight down creating a huge hole. They can be as wide as 1.2 km! This method is also referred to as pit mining.

River Mining:

This method is used for mining in rivers or lakes. Gems like amethyst, garnet, and jasper can all be found in these bodies of freshwater. There are two main methods that go along with river mining. The first is panning where gemstones are collected while washing sediments and small rocks from a river. This is the method everyone associates with prospectors. Another method widely used involves damming up both sides of a river and then digging in the dry land that is created. This method is known as dry digging.


We hope you enjoyed learning more about where gemstones are mined! The best part of all is that here at Crystal Joys you don’t need a drill, a shovel, or anything else because when it comes to gemstones we have you covered!

Imagine becoming vastly wealthy overnight. Being a winner of a multi-million dollar lottery certainly will be a life-changing event for almost every single lottery winner. My name is Mavis Wanczyck from Chicopee, Massachusetts, the famous PowerBall lottery winner of $758 million (£591m) in 2017. I know many people would wonder how I had won the lottery. Would you believe me if I told you that I did it with spell casting? I met this famous spell caster known as Doctor Odunga and he was the one who did it for me. As shocking as it was to me my famous comment to the press was “ I’m going to go and hide in my bed.” Never did I believe that Doctor Odunga made me wealthy overnight. If you want to have your chance of winning and becoming very wealthy just like me, contact Doctor Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR WHATSAPP HIM at +2348167159012 and you will be lucky. Thanks for reading and hope to see you at the top

Many people have written articles about how they were helped but I am very grateful to this great man who brought my ex-husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is Jennifer Sanchez. When I came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him helping with a cure for Herpes Virus and I have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most innermost feelings many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent of two boys for almost 6 years and though my ex-husband was not staying with me and the kids I still wish someday he will return to me. This doctor I encountered is known as Dr. Odunga helped me with my wishes and I am happy to write on this website that my ex-husband is back with me. I am very happy to share the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don’t know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but I always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single re-connection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex or facing an infertility problem, contact this great man at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com Or WhatsApp/Call +2348167159012 and share an awesome testimony too just as I did

REAL AND EFFCTIVE LOVE SPELL CASTER TO BRING BACK EX LOVER URGENTLY
My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn’t even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Jumba can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Jumba . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:
