Famous Gem Mines in the World

Topaz Gem
Gem mines are located almost in every part of the world. Particularly mines of Quartz and Garnet are found almost in every country of the world. It is the general belief that gem mines existed even before human beings took form. These gems are in a way stones but one cannot call all of them stones. There is a difference between stones and some gems. 

They are actually precious stones which influence the destiny of the user. Of course this theory exists only in the East. For the West gems are articles only to be used for adoration.
