'Visit to the Moonstone mines' - it sounded magical!
It turned out to be a very dull experience followed by a high pressure sales spiel.
The 'mine' was a hole in the ground and a puddle at the bottom with an old guy squatting in the water. Were those shiny wet moonstones between his toes? Really? I wonder who put them there?
I suppose they do really dig up moonstones here, but it is absurd to describe it as a 'mine'. And it is not so much about visiting a moonstone mine as about being persuaded to buy over-priced jewellery.
You can buy the same moonstone jewellery (with certificates of authenticity etc etc) at many other tourist traps on the island, but at a fraction of the price.
I tried to persuade myself that I found something about this visit interesting, because I hate to think that I wasted my time. Well, there was a nice walk through a patch of forest to get there.....
