The book is based on the author’s first hand experience working for one of Bangkok’s largest gem trading companies. It documents the ruby trade in Burma, Thailand, and Vietnam. Called ma naw na ya in Burma—“Wish-fulfilling stones”—rubies are believed to grant their wearer’s wishes. Both the trader’s modern-day mysteries and old traditions are the subject of this inside view.
