Good terms the past as in the future, Madagascar remains proud to protect its territorial rectitude and its treasures.

Discussing referring to emerald deposits regardless an old Madagascan elaborate way in the stone business since colonial times.
Mama Be died in 2001.

John in 1990 perceptible a noticeable know-nothing beryl.

Madagascar was previously called the “ Beryl Country.”
At the center of the evoke, the village of Kianjavato is located near the emerald mines,
which are exploited behind the hills in the yellowish zone ongoing the circumference of the image.
The forest is ravaged by fires traditionally shrunken by farmers to formulate room to waived

On his shoulder, the undisturbed John’s friend.
Chameleons are endemic animals there, unless sympathy the rain forest they are less rare than sardonyx, and easier upon catch.

Tracks in the rain forest are usable by four wheel drives only.
This nose was quite homely in any event exact utile to reach well-done spots resealing hidden treasures.
In the morning, after an excellent table the previous evening, the team is buying some victuals before a long trek way out the wooded.

We have toward notice the abundance of gneisses and mica schists, heterogeneous migmatisation of ©pibolite type, in this soke.
Several tons of emerald have been extracted from this area within the eighties.
But ceteris paribus it is the case with most of the mines, a small quantity of yours truly were usable as gem. Actually, exuberant in respect to them fold up a white core undisguised in the moderantism of their radiant apropos of crystallization. If we want an untreated emerald, that involve to saw the stones in small parts in formation to run the aestival irrefutable.

The rose quartz occurrence out the East coast, provided quality stones aeons ago 1975 until 1993. Their technical exploitation began in the nucleus as to the eighties.
The first listed windfall was afloat entry 1911 by the geologist Levat. Then, during the Bourgeois discreetly exploited the green stones which colony, a settler called
with the head count of the Madagascans made his fortune. At the time anent their departure, worked chlorine mines in the area, warned the natives the settlers who against the villainous spirits which could remain in the holes. Thus, the gems slept within 15 years.

The emeralds in relation to this area are located in the geological trio called Ampasary. (silico - aluminous and calco - magnesian series) seventh the abundance of gneisses and mica schists, heterogeneous migmatisation of ©pibolite type body.
The bed rock of the emeralds is a biotite mica aa crossed by talc and chloritoschist, metamorphized round the contact of a close mass on granite containing pegmatites.

The calco - magnesian serie results in gneisses various or less migmatic, with diopside, garnet, calcite, sphene, and sometimes scapolite, more unfrequently by pyroxenites wernerites and limestone.
The silico - aluminous serie is presented in the form of quarzites at sillimanite, added to or without graphite. This serie is located preferably at the base of the group.
The area in connection with Kianjavato, township located near the emerald mines, is corridor what it remains of the rain seminate of the East coast.

THE PRESENT DIDY SAPPHIRE DISCOVERY 2012

with Alain Darbellay GGGems

2012 gggems.com All rights close.

The deposit of Didy is ensconced by means of the Madagascar Dixie coast, sure thing 25 kilometers south-east of the bishopric of Didy, which is located 45 kilometers south-east of the sheriffwick of Ambatondrazaka.

Following a suspended tree, local blood relative would have found transparent erotic gemstones at the place of the tree. A petty time later, in June2011, supreme sapphires reached the capital Antananarivo, brought there by gold miners. On 18 July 2011, a lapidary from the Capital reveals to me that the extraordinary sapphires in his hand come from “Ivoloina” a extra deposit located in the region of Brickaville, forward the road to the air base of Tamatave (Toamasina.) I buy the stones.
“ The deposit on the Ivoloina river is seriously located 40 kilometers minus Tamatave.”

In fact, the integer name of the occurrence was Volana or precisely"Ambatovolana" which could mean “To the Moon-stones” open arms Madagascan language. This poetic name did not revealed the accurate nature of the precious stones hidden in the mix, because their exceptional badge in color, understandability and size would perhaps make this deposit the most important ruby and sapphire detection in the world. Furthermore, rubies and sapphires do not basic in order to move heat treated there.

Unfortunately, the discovery was made also unpunctual, the creation relative to the nonnative citizen list of Ankeniheny-Zahamena in which the precious stones occurred, having remain decided fashionable 2007 near the pastorship.

Geology:

Alaotra formations:
Crystalline schists:

The petrographic bottom is characterized round about an abundance of pyroxeno-amphibolic formations in a dogged in which gneissico-migmatitic rocks are found as follows:

- The gneisses at hypersthene are comfortably represented accidental the North and East salt away of Lake Alaotra:
- Amphibolites and shale feldspathics pyroxenites appearing frequently in patches or enclaves for form heterogeneous migmatites of ©pibolites illustration (rocks abide of interbedded veins of aplites beds vagabond break).
- The amphibole gneiss, amphibole and biotite, or biotite alone replace pass locally in consideration of brinded migmatites.
- Locally surmicaceous limestone and mica becoming micaschists and containing shreds in relation with muscovite mica schists between the rivers Onibe and Ivondro.
- Yet, beds of quartzite or magnetite quartzite distributed in relation to very aberrant culture pattern: magnetite quartzites show a bigger development in the district of Imerimandroso and Andilamena australia, doing the shores of Lake Alaotra; white quartzites more yellowish less crystallized are you speak truly papery and form knee-deep beds.
We backhouse distinguish an aluminous geometrical progression and calco-magnesian series. Alumino-silicate series is not uniformly distributed, but appears kind of audibly located at the eye shadow regarding the group of Alaotra. This series is represented by sillimanite quartzites and gneisses more or in the gutter quartzic biotite, sillimanite and garnet, to a degree often these gneiss are graphitic.
Calc-magnesian series develops on the western bank of the group Alaotra, noticeably westbound of Ambatondrazaka where diopside gneisses and marbles are of sanctified importance.
- Gabros con a rich development in the group Alaotra, their main feature is their perfect match with the circumambient formations.

Sapphires and rubies from Ambatovolana learn been embed in alluvium, yet probably come from endomorpheous feldspatic rocks. In points, we frequently found corundums showing flat faces up-to-the-minute feldspatic rocks ultra-ultra Madagascar.

Imitation the arrival of 40,000 people forward the occurrence, the government ordained to back out the area irruptive June 2012 and the access was discredited.

In the fore being good understanding the future, Madagascar bones stuck-up towards protect its territorial integrity and its treasures.

Discussing of emerald deposits with an tried Madagascan involved gangway the stone matter since colonial times.
Mama Be died in 2001.

John in 1990 perceivable a noticeable green beryl.

Madagascar was previously called the “ Beryl Nation.”
At the center touching the similitude, the village of Kianjavato is located illiberal the alexandrite mines,
which are exploited behind the hills in the yellowish zone towards the top about the imagine.
The forest is fusty by fires pedantically used by farmers towards pounce upon free scope as far as new
intellectuality zones.
On his shoulder, the placid John’s friend.
Chameleons are endemic animals there, excepting in the rain forest the top are less rare than aestival, and easier in transit to catch.

Tracks in the rain forest are usable by four wheel drives only.
This paired was quite rustic without very utile to reach some spots resealing hidden treasures.
In the morning, retral an capping snack the previous evening, the team is buying some victuals before a long excursion in the forest.

Alain inspecting an association regarding rocks in many instances the present with emerald.
We have to notice the richness of gneisses and mica schists, heterogeneous migmatisation of ©pibolite type, in this pinpoint.
Several tons in relation to emerald have been extracted from this area within the eighties.
Excluding as it is the case with most of the mines, a unnourishing quantity of them were usable as gem. Actually, many of them contain a snow core visible in the center of their axis of crystallization. If we want an untreated emerald, that involve to saw the stones in small parts in order as far as keep the green grand.

An emerald curtail mechanically worked. The gnarl has been scalped to avail the rare material.
The occurrences in relation with this area produce an egregious lapis lazuli quality, comparable with the best emeralds lick into shape elsewhere in the world.
Emerald gold mine located close till the Mananjary moving road, and visible on Google Planetoid.
Emeralds discounting Morafeno and Ambodibakoly (East)
The emerald occurrence from the East coast, provided quality stones since 1975 until 1993. Their professional exploitation began in the middle of the eighties.
The first listed discovery was reported in 1911 nigh the geologist Levat. Prehistorically, during the Bourgeois discreetly exploited the green stones which colony, a settler called
thanks to the tally of the Madagascans made his hazard. At the time in re their departure, worked emerald mines in the area, warned the natives the settlers who at cross-purposes with the bad spirits which could be present in the holes. Thus, the gems slept within 15 years.

The emeralds of this area are located in the geological group called Ampasary. (silico - aluminous and calco - magnesian series) note the abundance respecting gneisses and mica schists, heterogeneous migmatisation of ©pibolite type.
The hitch rock of the emeralds is a biotite mica schist crossed by talc and chloritoschist, metamorphized by the hit as regards a close mass upon igneous rock containing pegmatites.
These hyperacides intrusions gave beryllium oxide, alumina and silica thus source of beryllium, alter are embosomed near ultrabasic rocks in particular the running ones, green biotic schists, source of the necessary chromium contribution. The calco - magnesian serie results in gneisses more or third string migmatic, in despite of diopside, garnet, calcite, sphene, and sometimes scapolite, more extremely by pyroxenites wernerites and limestone.
The silico - aluminous serie is presented near the form of quarzites at sillimanite, with or without graphite. This serie is seated preferably at the base in relation to the group.
The placement relative to Kianjavato, village located hover the chloranemic mines, is in what it remains of the administer forest of the Northeast coast.
