Cambodia
 
 
Cambodia is divided into twenty khêt (provinces) and four autonomous municipalities. Phnom = hill or mountain.

There are numerous sedimentary rocks including sandstones and limestones, low to high grade metamorphic rocks as well as granitic intrusives as well as extensive basaltic extrusive rocks. The basement rocks tend to be Proterozoic metamorphic rocks. Various areas contain Cambrian to Cretaceous sedimentary rocks. Pliocene basalts and Quaternary sediments are extensively developed.

The gemstone deposits are formed where alluvial processes have concentrated the gem xenoliths found in the basalts.
