Chinese media covers the gem industry quite often. Here is just one of the many informational gem-related videos created for the Chinese consumer market.

Reporting from Sri Lanka, CGTN correspondent Hou Jing interviews Sri Lanka Gem & Jewellery Association Lapidary Segment Vice Chairman, Pinsiri Wijepala (Wijaya Gems PVT Ltd).

“Sri Lanka is one of the most important gemstone-producing areas in the world today. Rubies, moonstones and garnets produced here are also highly sought-after, along with the extraction and refining of dazzling sapphires. These colorful gems will have their sparkle restored after careful processing by skilled lapidarists. Join us in exploring the process of gem extraction and refinement in a factory near Colombo! #TheNewSilkRoad”
