Reply To: Recent trip to Mogok mine Myanmar

Profile photo of sydp

Hi, the workers earn 10% of what comes out of the mine after sale, you must remember this is Burma/Myanmar
the only thing Mogok has got is its gems nothing else and they are in very short supply now
I must say that on our trip the people were very friendly and to us were happy. we had a lot of people trying to sell us gemstone at the markets there. And even in Mogok if your not careful you will come away with a piece of synthetic or glass which some of our tour group discovered after buying rough gemstone

Take your love of gemstones
