Auction of precious stones in Myanmar

     An international auction of precious stones in Myanmar’s capital has won the receipts of over $ 2.8 bln. 

       Most of the buyers were from China and Thailand. There were also many from Singapore, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea and India. 

       They showed especial interest to rubies and to jadeite – a greenish-yellow stone also known as “the emperor’s nephrite”. Myanmar is the world’s largest producer of rubies and jadeites.
