Over the years, Kariba Minerals has developed a unique grading system. The amethysts are carefully sorted and graded by a skilled workforce, using stringent quality control measures. This has established our amethyst as a premium brand known as KARIBA AMETHYST. Our product is in great demand among both manufacturers and wholesalers as the quality of our materials is becoming increasingly apparent. Presently, the company exports mainly to China and India, but we also have clients in Europe and America.

Overview of Zambia

Zambia is a major source of gemstones for the world’s jewellery market. In November 2007, Zambia won the Mining Journal’s Country Award for its expanding mineral production, transparent mining law, excellent infrastructure, and improved corporate governance.

Politically, Zambia has maintained amicable relations with its neighbouring countries, resulting in continued stability. It is a member of the Southern African Development Community and has had four consecutive democratically elected governments over the past 16 years. No government has been overthrown by a coup d’état, and the risk of armed conflict is low.

Zambia’s exports are sent to ports in neighbouring countries via railway. Investment in Zambia’s road network has been scaled up since the launch of a ten-year US$1 billion investment program in 1998.
