Mogok, Myanmar (Burma)

Children, crouched by a woman hunting for rubies and spinels, smile as she shows them what she has found. Children often work with women to help them to find gemstones. As women are not allowed into the mines, because of Buddhist tradition, many women look for rubies among gravel sifted from rivers and streams.
