The most important places with reserves of this ‎mineral in Myanmar, Tajikistan, Sri Lanka‎, South of Asia, Thailand

Myanmar, Tajikistan, Sri Lanka‎, South of Asia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia have the best Spinel quality ‎called "ruby". Other countries such as Afghanistan, Nepal, Australia, Tanzania, Madagascar, Nigeria, and ‎southwestern Kenya also have good veins. In Vietnam, near the Luc Yen region, the extraction of spinels ‎and rubies has begun in earnest since 1990, when most spinels are pink.‎

In Tanzania, in the 1980s, red-pink to cherry-red spinel stones and a neon effect were found in mines ‎around Morogoro County. Today, there are reports of clear, cut spinels ranging in size from 10 to 50 ‎carats. Tanzania has been reported. But let's look at the most important places with reserves of this ‎mineral:‎

Badakhshan Spinel (La’al) mine in Tajikistan and its history

The ancient and historical mine of Badakhshan (La’al‎ Mountain) near the Murghab region in the east of ‎Badakhshan province, whose spinels are known in ancient Iran as "La’al‎ Badakhshan", is one of the most ‎important deposits of La’al‎ stone in modern Tajikistan. The mine is said to have been discovered due to a ‎strong earthquake and the subsequent collapse of large rocks from the mountain and the damage caused ‎by it.‎

At an altitude of 2,900 meters between Kurog and Vashkashim along the Panj River, on the border between ‎Tajikistan and Afghanistan, is the La’al‎ Mountain mine, which has about half of its spinels red and the rest ‎pink. Mining of this mine started in the 7th century AD and it is said that famous stones such as Timur Ruby ‎and Black Prince ruby, which were originally spinel, were extracted from this place.‎

During the twentieth century, due to the geographical and closed conditions in the Soviet Union, these ‎mines were less known. In the war between the Russian and British empires over colonialism and the ‎demarcation of borders in western Asia, because Russia had little interest in jewelry, these mines were mapped on ‎the Afghan-Russian border and somehow hidden from the world.‎
