Press Release: Milenyum Mining Limited (MML) is excited to announce that the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted it two trademarks for the rare and unique gemstone, CSARITE®.  U.S. serial number 86162962 was issued on July 22, 2014 for "CSARITE" and U.S. serial number 86162943 was issued on August 5  for "CSARITE RARE. NATURAL.EXQUISITE."

CSARITE is ethically sourced and responsibly mined from its sole known source deep in the mountains of the Anatolia region of Turkey. The CSARITE  trademark is intended to promote  greater consumer recognition of this gemstone, which is rapidly growing in popularity, and help distinguish it from synthetics and simulants entering the market through unscrupulous dealers and retailers.

With the trademark now approved and registered, MML has stepped up its efforts to combat theft and illegal mining at the mine site by working closely with Turkish ministries and the army to monitor illegal activity and take immediate legal action when necessary.  The Milas County Courts recently approved the first conviction of an illegal miner, who will face 12 months in prison and substantial financial fines.  Some 35 other individuals are being sued and more convictions will follow.

“As this lovely gemstone grows in popularity, it’s especially important that the quality and purity of natural csarite is protected,” said Murat Akgun, the president of MML.  “With the granting of the name and slogan trademarks, our already transparent supply chain instills even greater confidence for our buyers.”

Akgun urges consumers interested in purchasing CSARITE,  especially those traveling to Turkey, to only buy the gem from MML’s authorized retailers and distributors, which can be found on the web site  He urges all buyers to check the web site  frequently, as MML is constantly monitoring its distributors and the list may change due to their strict screening  policy.

MML is the world’s only source supply of CSARITE®, a natural, unenhanced color-change gemstone. Responsible for cutting and marketing of this phenomenal gemstone, MML’s mission is to introduce gem and jewelry connoisseurs around the globe to CSARITE’s unique beauty and rarity. MML is a member of The International Colored Gemstone Association.  CSARITE will be available for wholesale purchase at the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair, at AWE #10U31.
