Peshawar’s Namak Mandi: A Gemstone Heaven

The global gemstone market in 2023 is valued at USD 32.38 billion and is expected to reach USD 56 billion by 2033, with a compound annual growth rate of 5.6 percent. Pakistan possesses the world's fifth-largest high-quality gemstone reservoirs, particularly in KP (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa) and GB (Gilgit-Baltistan).

Descending into Peshawar’s Namak Mandi, a tourist might be surprised to learn that amid the sprawling meat and tikka shops, within the dark and narrow alleys, lies a globally recognized gemstone market.
