The Mogok crystals. The Mogok ( (Burmese: ????????, pronounced[mó?o??]; Shan: ??????????, pronounced[m??? kut]) is a Pyin Oo Lwin District of the Mandalay region of Myanmar, 200 km northeast of Mandalay and 148 km northeast of Shwebo. After the British, the people moved the village together with Pyin Oo Lwin to the Mandalay region.
Gemstones are for sale at stores in Mogok; however, foreign nationals need specific permission to enter the city, and the purchase/export of Myanmar gemstones from non-state approved traders is not law. 90 percent of a certain ruby versions in the worlds are from Myanmar / Burma, there are many other ruby springs in the worlds like Sri Lanka and various places in Africa.
It is only in relation to qualitiy that Mogok jewels are the best. Myanmar's gemstones are purchased by Thailand. The" Valley of the Rubies", the Mogok region, 200 km northern of Mandalay, is considered the primal spring of the ruby, among them the best" dove' blood" ruby of the word as well as the most attractive Sapphire of the word in" king blue".
Mogok, known as the Ruby River Basin, lies 200 km northerly of Mandalay, embedded in a deep mountain range where a cold moderate weather prevails all year round due to its height (1170 metres). This area is home to 90% of the world's top-quality jewels.
Well known for its gems (including dove' bloom ruins and sapphire blues quoted in Burma's antique literature) and a shimmering series of semiprecious gems such as chapislazuli, pomegranate, lunar stone, pomegranate, pearidot and chronoberyl, Mogok has been for hundreds of years. Only Mogok and some other gemstone types contain rarer rocks like Painit, Hibbonit and Poudretteit.
As many other Myanmar tradition, Mogok' s coal mines are little to no mechanized today and are heavily handcrafted, focused on hilly reservoirs, through open ditches, underground mines, or by digging tunnel directly into the sand. There are a number of lively ruby stores, which include the Panchan and Aungchanthar stores, in the center of the city (note that gemstones available at Mogok stores are only available from state-licensed retailers).
We would like to point out that it is currently not possible for foreign visitors to come to Mogok; we will be updating this page as soon as the current status changes. The Mogok area is part of the Mandalay Division and borders Shan State and is home to a varied ethnical community, which includes Bamar, Shan, Lisu, Palaung and Karen as well as Chinese, Indian and Gurkhas (descendants of a Nepali group).
Mogok' s lakes and the pagoda-covered hills that surround the cityscape are as impressive as the gems of Mogok. Phaung Daw Oo and Paw Daw Mu Pagoden's gold Stupa, associated with the famed Mogok Sayadaw monks, are located on Daw Nan Kyi Mt.
Lake Mogok is situated next to the village, and there is also a little-known World War II veterans' graveyard just outside the village.
