The origin of my interest in the gem industry
That is, we lived in the beautiful village of Hasalaka Pahala Meegolla, which is located at one end of the Kandy district. I went to school at CP/TEL/Udawela Bandaranayaka Secondary School and spent every evening at the event where my father worked in the mines. There, I help my father to collect “illam”. And I also look forward to the occasions when father breaks “Illam”, washes “Illam” and looks at the “Nambu”. Even today, I remember with great joy how I took in my hands the gems like “Blue Sapphire”, “Flower pollen”, “Geuda” and “Milk arunool” that father obtained after examining “Nambu”. That is the origin of my interest in the gem industry. Since then, after school, my attention to gems increased and I turned to that industry. I remember that there was no price for “Geuda” at that time. At that time, I remember how my father kept some home gems from the mines in a beautiful place at home. But I feel that after the technology of “Geuda” baking came, the “Geuda” was converted into Blue Sapphire and started to be priced.
