Lai Cao – Luc Yen – Hanoi

Started quite early in the morning and headed to Luc Yen, famous for colourfull gems like rubies, sapphires, and spinells in snow-white marble. Unfortunatelly, they are manufactured into kitsch sculptures and stuff – raw material rarely to be found. Nice to see all the gems anyway.

Kitsch from beautiful rocks. Nice handwork though.
