Where gems are found in the world

  1. Feb 9, 2012 #1
    Does anyone have a graphic of a world map that shows what countries produce certain gems. I know Colombia has the most emeralds and west africa has the diamonds. I'm curious about the other gems.

    Here is a list, it's not a world map. I think I know an Atlas that had that, if I can find it.

    Here is a world map, but it only lists a few of the more expensive gems.

    Did you only want free online sources?
