- how white sapphires are processed-
This is a film made by Crescent Gems in
trip from mine to market for 1-3.5mm White Sapphire.
…and if you check out the forum below my signature and click on the
mining link you will see photos of the mining operation (and a 900+
carat Cornflower Blue Sapphire) that were taken when a Canadian
company came to film for Discovery Channel Canada.
The forum walks you thru the various types of mining…from deep well
mining to shallow mining and riverbed mining with photos of each.
