SRI LANKA & BURMA GEMS BOOK SET 2 Volumes by Vladyslav Y. Yavorskyy
Two lands. Two origins. One destiny. In the history of gemstones, these two names have always been crucial. The defining sources of all most precious treasures in all civilizations, a melting pot of monsoon nature, magma-heated tectonic plates and long-rooted history.
Ruby and Sapphire, Burma and Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Ceylon. If you choose only one continent to discover the spirit of gemstones, this would be your destination. If you choose only one source to indulge in this journey at the palms of your hands, this would be a new Book by Vladyslav Yavorskyy.
Burma Gems. Sri Lanka Gems. is a duplex dedicated to the most significant gem-bearing lands, their people, nature, history, culture, and the plethora of their Gemstones, above all.
Over thirty years of his gem-hunting life, Vlad Yavorskyy for a decade has lived in Sri Lanka where he opened his first overseas lapidary factory, and he has visited Myanmar over 160 times in twenty years, exploring the country from A to Z, collecting Burmese rocks from Agate to Zircon. With his personal attachment to the two gem terras and the characteristic personal touch in all his works, this project is Yavorskyy’s declaration of love to the places which defined the author’s mission and vision.
