Brazil - Minas Gerais
Episode 4: Brazil - Minas Gerais
This journey takes us both above and below eastern Brazil as Nagin explores Governador Valadares, the center for minerals in Brazil, as well as one of the world's best places for paragliding before traveling to Minas Gerais. Famed for its gemstones, we see how Brazil's minerals are cut, polished, and prepared for market. Thomas travels to local mines to find gems in their natural, but equally beautiful form, visits the renowned Pederneira tourmaline mine, and an aquamarine mine where he explores a newly found gem pocket as it's being uncovered.
