121. Burma Partners Home Page
Untreated natural rubies, spinel, sapphire and peridot.
Unheated and Untreated Ruby and Sapphire from Mogok and Nanyarseik For more than a thousand years many of the world's finest gemstones have come from the storied land of Burma (Myanmar). In particular, the legendary Mogok valley in north central Myanmar has long yielded its stunning "pigeon blood red" rubies, the standard by which the rest of the world's rubies are measured. In addition to rubies, Mogok also produces rich-colored blue and pink sapphires, fiery red and orange spinels, and the enchanting green peridot. In more recent times, the Nanyarseik area of Myanmar's Kachin State has been building its own reputation as another source of outstanding Burmese gemstones. Burma Partners offers for sale, to collectors and jewelers, precious gemstones from this fabled land. Acquiring directly at the source, or from traders who make their way into border towns nearby, we are able to provide outstanding examples of unheated Mogok rubies and sapphires. We also offer a wide range of sizes and colors of Burmese spinels, moderate to very large sized Burmese peridots, and other gems mined from the rich soils of Mogok and Nanyarseik. Additionally, Burma Partners offers the finest in natural gem crystals and mineral specimens.

127. Burma, 1942
This brochure was prepared in the US Army Center of Military Historyby Clayton R. Newell. burma, 1942. 7 December 194126 May 1942.
Introduction World War II was the largest and most violent armed conflict in the history of mankind. However, the half century that now separates us from that conflict has exacted its toll on our collective knowledge. While World War II continues to absorb the interest of military scholars and historians, as well as its veterans, a generation of Americans has grown to maturity largely unaware of the political, social, and military implications of a war that, more than any other, united us as a people with a common purpose. Highly relevant today, World War II has much to teach us, not only about the profession of arms, but also about military preparedness, global strategy, and combined operations in the coalition war against fascism. During the next several years, the U.S. Army will participate in the nation's 50th anniversary commemoration of World War II. The commemoration will include the publication of various materials to help educate Americans about that war. The works produced will provide great opportunities to learn about and renew pride in an Army that fought so magnificently in what has been called "the mighty endeavor." World War II was waged on land, on sea, and in the air over several diverse theaters of operation for approximately six years. The following essay is one of a series of campaign studies highlighting those struggles that, with their accompanying suggestions for further reading, are designed to introduce you to one of the Army's significant military feats from that war.

Landmines and Burma (Myanmar)
Burma is a highly mine-affected country:
  • government forces and at least 11 ethic groups continue to lay mines;
  • loggers and drug traffickers are also allegedly using mines;
  • neighbours, Bangladesh and Thailand, have accused Myanmar forces of using mines illegally across their borders;
  • there are landmines in 9 out of 14 states and divisions in Burma;
  • people are injured or killed by mines every month (detailed statistics are not available however);
  • there is no humanitarian demining in Burma;
  • mine survivors receive little assistance: unless a victim can pay for treatment, no care is available;
  • Burma still produces mines;
  • Burma has not joined the Mine Ban Treaty.
As part of the ICBL's ongoing actions for a mine-free Burma, we support the Nobel Peace Laureate Campaign for Aung San Suu Kyi and the People of Burma. Read the latest Landmine Monitor Report on Burma for further background on the situation.

Links Investing in the democratic future of Burma through its young people AUNG SAN SUU KYI APPEALS FOR PROSPECT BURMA Aung San Suu Kyi, human rights activist and leader of Burma's National League for Democracy, was detained in 1989 by the ruling military junta and kept under house arrest for most of the following 13 years, until her release in May 2001. She was rearrested in May 2003 and is currently being held incommunicado under "protective custody", in spite of international protest. Aung San Suu Kyi was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991. She appeals below for others to join her in supporting Prospect Burma. The future of my country lies in the hands of the younger generation. Under the present military government the whole educational system is neglected and higher education is virtually non-existent with the frequent closure and repressive control of the universities. Prospect Burma is a non-political charity which does its best to fill the gap.

    140. Trip To Burma (Myanmar) - Shaun O'Boyle
    A photographic and descriptive account of a seven day visit to burma (now Myanmar) in 1987.
    Burma (myanmar) I visited Burma (now Myanmar) in 1987 while I was doing a six month shoestring trip through central and southeast Asia. I was traveling by bus, train, boat or whatever cheap means available, often walking, but to enter Burma I had to fly in, no cross border entries were allowed. Most of what I am writing here now is remembrances of the trip and from leafing through my travel journal. I found Burma to be a remarkable place, a time warp in South East Asia. In some ways it is one of the least western influenced nations I have traveled in, definitely no coca cola in Burma which was a welcome change. But in other ways it was strangely influenced by the west. When we arrived at the airport outside of Rangoon we we're greeted by the usual slew of taxi drivers touting cheap fares and fleabag hotel deals, but these guys were driving 1940's Cadillac's, Chevy's and willys jeeps. It felt like we were in a world war two movie set. Much of the machinery and automobiles that I saw in the country was world war two issue that had been left behind by uncle Sam and it had been patched and ingeniously repaired over the last 40 odd years. I am not sure of the visa conditions now but when I was there you were only allowed to stay in the country for seven days. That's it, no extensions, your out. I was traveling solo but had grouped together with a few people I had met in Bangkok and who were also on the flight into Rangoon. We all decided to hang together and see if our collective bargaining power could get us a deal on a vehicle and gear for a trip up to the central part of the country where the ruins of Pagan are located.
