Mozambique

It was not until 2008 that rich ruby deposits were discovered in Mozambique in East Africa. Since then, the gemstones from the mine near Montepuez have been among the most sought-after rubies on the world market. Today, according to recent findings, Mozambique supplies about 80% of the world’s production of high-quality rubies. Besides rubies, many of the high-quality Paraiba tourmalines also come from Mozambique.
