Jade Market, Mandalay
This was a huge market, where dozens of vendors had their jade in various stages and grades of presentation were available for sale. The market is not frequently visited by tourists, and generally serves as a local source of the product. Myanmar jade is generally regarded as the best in the world, and I have no doubt that the dusty, dull goodies on the makeshift tables were all good samples of the country's wares.
As always, there were "mobile" vendors, with little gem boxes of ruby and emerald speciments, in the rough, cab and facet cut. They were persistent, but very polite, and no issue at all with failure to purchase their goodies.
