Ho-mine-sho, Mogok Valley, Mogok Township, Pyin-Oo-Lwin District, Mandalay Region, Myanmar

The gem mines are situated just west of Myaw-pyet. Mostly red spinels and fewer rubies are produced from the alluvium in open-pit mining schemes. In the same area, red spinels are found in the partially decomposed marble comprising a small scale karst topography.
