Canadian Gemmological Association Recipient of CSARITE® Contribution

The Canadian Gemmological Association’s (CGA) two campuses received a contribution of CSARITE® gemstones for student study. Milenyum Mining, Ltd. made the donation at the request of the CGA to expand their student’s knowledge of the natural, single source gem, actively mined at only one global source deep in the Anatolia Mountains of Turkey. The contribution consists of a variety of sizes and shapes of faceted gems and rough specimens.

Donna Hawrelko, president of the CGA remarked on the size and quality of the donation, “Receiving a contribution of CSARITE® gems of this magnitude enables CGA to share knowledge of this gem with our students as awareness grows within the marketplace.”

“We are thrilled that the Canadian Gemmological Association recognizes the increasing market exposure of CSARITE®, and the importance of correct identification of this unique gem,” stated Murat Akgun, president of Milenyum Mining Limited. “The fact that CSARITE® enjoys a completely transparent pipeline makes it a favorite with students, designers and consumers alike!”

Always natural and never enhanced, the lovely CSARITE® exhibits the rare gemological phenomenon of ‘color change’, exhibiting different colors under varying sources of light. Only about 40 – 50% of rough CSARITE® material is suitable for faceting, and of that amount, 98% is lost in the cutting process.
