Saphire aus Sri Lanka

Saphire aus Sri Lanka

Sri Lankan Sapphires, from a Sri Lankan mining cooperative are traceable and are tracked from mine to market. The polishing is done in Sri Lanka at an operation which is exemplary in their treatment of employees. To get these gems, Guy Clutterbuck has formed a partnership with a Sri Lankan gem dealer. Together, they invest in a small scale mining operation with eight miners and a foreman. They work cooperatively; together, there are eleven shareholders. Each gets a share of the sale. Mining is done by hand, which means that the supply is going to last over generations. The Gems are cut in Sri Lanka by a local facility that has excellent working conditions and pays above the going rate in order to attract, keep and nurture excellent cutters. It is not a sweat shop and there is no child labor. The polishing factory funds a school and pays for the schooling its employees. It also provides a subsidized canteen and helps to cover accommodations.
