Most of people in the jewellery industry do not know that, China is today one of the major source of sapphire mines in the world amongst Sri Lanka, Burma, Madagaska. The majority of Sapphire loose stones sold from Thailan, India and Taiwan, they are bought from Chinese mines and re-branded as Thai sapphire or Ceylon sapphires. A large sapphire reserve was discovered along the north east coast of China in the 1980s, today the rough stones are cut at the mine workshops and are sold to Thai and other South East Asian gem traders to be re-exported to the world. Today as Ceylon mine approaches exhaustion, Chinese sapphire mines begin to get the attention of the world.
