FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

World’s Largest Faceted CSARITE® to be Displayed in Tucson

Milenyum Mining Limited is excited to announce that the world’s largest known faceted CSARITE® gemstone will be displayed by The Courtney Collection, Booth 2206 at the Gem and Jewelry Exchange trade show in Tucson, AZ February 3 – 8, 2015. The 121.65 carat pear shape rarity was cut from a rough of approximately 430 grams. Previously, the largest known faceted CSARITE® was an 88.49 carat pear shape that took home a coveted 2014 AGTA Cutting Edge Award.

“Achieving a faceted CSARITE® of this size and quality is extremely difficult, given the typical loss of rough when faceting,” stated Murat Akgun, president of Milenyum Mining Ltd, the operator of the world’s only CSARITE® mine. The only other large CSARITE® gemstones of a similar size have been cabochon gems that exhibit the cats eye and color change effect.

Erica Courtney of The Courtney Collection, exhibitor of the gem stated: “We are so excited to be able to share this one-of-a-kind color change gem with the industry! All the collectors and designers know that Tucson is THE place to find the truly unusual, so we expect to receive a lot of interest in this rare and responsibly-sourced stone.”

The lively gem is beautifully cut and exhibits a pronounced and vivid color change. It will be available to interested parties, along with calibrated goods and an extensive collection of fine-cut, larger single CSARITE® gemstones at The Courtney Collection, GJX Booth 2206.
