At our Capricorn Sapphire hub in Queensland Australia we operate within the parameters of one of the most well regulated mining regions in the world, both in terms of people and the environment.
By working hand in hand with the Queensland government Richland is developing a place for discerning consumers to purchase sapphires, safe in the knowledge their gemstones have a guaranteed origin , authenticity and a clear route from mine to market.
