SKS Enterprises, Inc., sells gems, jewelry, jade, and Maw Sit Sit from Burma and publishes books on Burma.
We specialize in fine rubies, sapphires, and spinels; also some high-quality green jadeite jade cabs
and slabs and small quantities of rough jadeite jade (all pre-embargo). We have
one of the largest collections of maw Sit Sit for
sale in the U.S. Our prices are not only competitive but below the prevailing
market prices. We also offer other Burmese colored stones and unique mineral
specimens from Burma and India. Virtually all of our merchandise is untreated
and natural. We have been in business for nearly 30 years.
We were in Tucson at the 22nd Street Show in January/February
and expect to be at the following shows through the year:
May: Bisbee Queen
Just published is a novel about wartime Burma: Rangoon 1941. A Novel Based on True Events
by S. Kella Samuels
story begins and ends in Rangoon but takes the reader to Moulmein and the pivotal
Battle at the Sittang Bridge, then across Burma to the
decisive battles fought on the Asian mainland at Kohima
and Imphal in India. Some of the characters fight for the British against the
Japanese; others work with the Japanese to implement the promised Greater
Co-Prosperity Sphere; and others are civilians caught up in the horrors of
war who flee for their lives across the mountains and jungles of northern
Burma. In the end, the characters reflect upon their tumultuous lives and the
legacy of World War II for them, their families, and the country of Burma.
SKS Enterprises also publishes Burma Ruby. A History of Mogok’s Rubies from Antiquity to the Present and Varieties
of Burmese Jade, both by S.K. Samuels. In 2009 we reprinted and expanded
the latter as Jade and Maw Sit Sit of
Burma. We are building a collection of short CDs that focus on just one
topic, such as a trip to Burma's Phakant jade
mines, a visit to the gemstone mines in Namya, and
the like. We invite you to contact us for your gemstone needs or to order any
of our publications.
