Moonstone mine

Meetiyagoda, a short drive inland from Ambalangoda, is home to some of the rarest moonstones in the world. Whilst semi-precious moonstones generally have a milky white appearance, those mined from Meetiyagoda take on a distinctive bluish hue. This trip takes you to one of the local mines where you’ll experience an interpretation of the mining process and see how the stones are cut, polished and crafted into jewellery.
