Little bit about Moonstone Mine Meetiyagoda
This could be the only place where you could find precious stones, especially moonstones abundantly. There is a myth that says this area has been blessed by the moon. The gem known as moonstone is grey in color (there are some gems that could be blue in color as well), and as the gem is polished it feels cool and smooth as it is made to perfection. You are even allowed to go down to the shafts to see how the stones are mined. The visitor guides will explain you everything you need to know about. There is also a dedicated shop available in this premise, where you can buy few stones, jewelleries that may be a lovable and valuable souvenir to take home.
