  • Our driver wanted to show this mine us because it will be supposedly so great. We at the beginning directly told him that we event nothing will buy in a such coffee ride. He said it was no problem. The "mine" is in a cinnamon plantation. The man from the mine was from the outset have not the friendliest. But we thought we just take us with. Somehow it's funny that in such places are always starting people to work if tourists come. When you visit the staff we were always forced to take pictures of the employees even though we don't want that. After the mine first overpriced cinnamon, you get turned on. Then it can cause the "processing agent". My friend is allergic to all jewelry, which is not made of silver or gold. On the question whether this is real silver was said: "Yes on anyway". On my response that not as much running real silver, let alone rust was first speechless. In the sales room, we should buy then ever totally overpriced jewelry. Conclusion: Duper and waste of my time.

  • Located on the territory of an abandoned mine, which is about a year does not work. Sellers spend a brief tour and show, the raw stones, then a quick step will lead you to a shop where they sell finished jewelry from sapphires, Topaz, garnets, etc. You can also select just processed stone and enjoy exclusive product. Production time-from a few hours to days, depending on complexity. Great selection, prices on the rocks below, than in Russia.
