I never knew that in Sri Lanka... rightly called "The Pearl of the Indian Ocean"... you also could find real "gems"... Thanks a lot Ravindra for this great and interesting postcard...Learned again something new about your beautiful island!!
With a lovely variety of stamps!
Among the famous Sri Lankan gems acclaimed for their beauty and value, in recent times, were the 400 carat Blue Sapphire called "Blue Belle" which adorns the British Crown, and the beautiful star sapphire misnamed the "Star of India" on permanent display in the Museum of Natural History in New York.
