Richblu Sees High Demand for Natural Precious Gemstones

Gemstone company Richblu Gems recently announced an increase in demand for its natural precious gemstones, in response to the pending removal of the Burmese ruby ban in the United States as well as the news that the Indian government will scrap its high-denomination 500- and 1,000-rupee currency notes to combat issues with counterfeiting and money laundering.

As some investors move away from cash to other commodities such as gold and property, Richblu has reported a growing number of inquiries from both existing and new customers for its Burmese rubies and also its sapphire and emerald gemstones, in a variety of sizes. The brand is working diligently to fulfill those inquiries and welcomes more requests. For more information on what’s available from Richblu, visit
