Dear all,

I'm happy to inform you that you will now be able to download from the GIA Laboratory Bangkok website our story about the new sapphire discovery near Kataragama in Sri Lanka.

In that 80+ page long illustrated pdf you will find
- A presentation of the discovery and the area,
- Our expedition report,
- Some observations and comments about the local geology
- and finally an extensively illustrated gemological study about the samples we collected on site around Kataragama.

The pdf is available on the following page:
http://www.giathai.net/lab.php
and it will be soon also on:
http://www.gia.edu/research-resources/n ... index.html

Hoping that you will like it.

All the best,
