    I also would like to know how to go about selling my gem stones. I have had them tested and certified by a Gemologist but because my country does not have a market for these Gems I need help form anyone out there who is interested or can offer advise.

    Natural rubies are a tricky issue. Before you can offer them for sale you do need to know the country of origin. And I, were I to consider buying one, would need to know your country of residence. For example, Burma rubies cannot currently enter the U.S. Other countries, including your own, may have restrictions. You really do not want to get into trouble with the law selling embargoes stones. Please be careful.
