I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generous gift of the suite of ten Sri Lankan gemstones. They are exquisite in both quality and size. I am very pleased to be able to add these specimens to the National Gem Collection.
The strength of our collection depends on generosity and cooperation such as you have shown, and we are most grateful to you.
