No wonder that now Malang has grown into a big city. Many new city’s facilities are being built. And the citizens are getting familiar with modern lifestyle. But yet, we can still find many traditional ‘things’ in Malang. One of them is traditional Akik Stone (Hakeek Stone) Market on Majapahit Street.
There are about 35 Akik sellers that display their Akik stones in front of unoccupied shop’s parking lot. They sell kinds of Akik Stone and also diamonds, completed with the ring. They get the stones from other Indonesian cities, and sometimes from other countries. Like Jamrud (Colombia), Blue Safire (Burma and Australia), Silent (Srilanka), Giok (China) and Red Ruby (Africa). An Akik Stone completed with the ring is priced from hundreds to million rupiahs. The ring itself can be made from gold, silver, stainless steel, monel, or cooper.
