Albert Ramsay is perhaps best remembered for having purchased and then cut the rough Mogok sapphire known as Gem of the Jungle a few years after the present work was written. According to Richard W. Hughes (with U Hla Win, Journal of Gemmology, 24:8, Oct. 1995, 551–561), drawing on contemporary sources, the rough was water-worn, doubly-terminated pyramid that weighed 959 carats. Ramsay acquired it for about £13,000 and cut it into nine stones ranging from 66.53 to 4.39 carats.
