For many years several MGE-joint venture companies have been mining gemstones at Pein-pyit-le-taw just behind the Pein-pyit village. Gem mining takes place on the small stream banks and in paddy fields, where yellow-green, greenish-blue sapphire, ruby, spinel, tourmaline, almandine, orthoclase, fibrolite and apatite are recovered from the alluvium. - Ted Themelis (2008) Gems and Mines of Mogok
