Sri Lanka - Ceylon Gem Museum

Entrance to the museum cum jewellery shop.

Our tut-tut ride and the daredevil driver.

Kandian Sinhalese gem cutter in Sri Lanka, 1930s

Gems... gems.. gems.... Actually Sri Lanka is one of the motherlodes for gems.

The tiger eye (my birth & lucky stone) that I bought for RM300. Was told later by others, that I should've got it cheaper.

The owner... I've forgotten his name already after two years.
