The history of Sri Lanka's gem business is very lengthy and interesting. Historically, Sri Lanka was referred to as Ratna-Dweepa, which is Sanskrit for "Gem Island." The name reflects the abundance of its natural resources. According to Marco Polo, the island is home to some of the world's finest sapphires, topazes, amethysts, and other stones. Beryl and sapphire were the two mainstays of Sri Lanka's gem industry, according to Ptolemy, an astronomer who lived in the second century. According to records from sailors who visited the island, they brought "jewels of Serendib" home. When traders from the Middle East and Persia travelled across the Indian Ocean to trade diamonds from Sri Lanka to the East in the fourth and fifth centuries, they gave the island the old name Serendib.
Formerly known as Ceylon, Sri Lanka continues to be one of the most significant sources of exquisite gemstones. Blue, pink, or yellow sapphires, almandine, and hessonite garnet, as well as cat's-eye and alexandrite chrysoberyl, stand out among other sapphire varieties. Other somewhat common gemstones include quartz, spinel, tourmaline, zircon, moonstone, and they all come from the same country as numerous more rare ones. Alluvial deposits located around the island contain the majority of the gem-quality material and are mined using traditional techniques.
