Burma-America Trading Company

SKS Enterprises, Inc., specializes 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. 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.


Publications on Burma are a unique offering from SKS. Current  books include:

  • NEW! Imperial Jade of Burma and Mutton-fat Jade of India: Mining, Trade, and Use from Antiquity to the Present, by S. K. Samuels (2014) Read More
  • Rangoon 1941. A Novel Based on True Events by S. Kella Samuels (2013)

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.


In February 2014 we will have a sales booth at the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show, February 13–16. Booth 1805-1806 at the Tucson Convention Center (Arena area). Come visit us!
