The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted two trademarks to Milenyum Mining Limited for the gemstone Csarite.
Ethically sourced and responsibly mined at its sole known source deep in the mountains of the Anatolia region of Turkey, the Csarite trademark will allow greater consumer recognition for this gemstone, but also 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 ministeries and 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,” states Murat Akgun, president of Milenyum Mining Limited. “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, and 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 www.csarite.info.
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.
Csarite will be available for wholesale purchase at the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair, AWE #10U31. For appointments contact email@example.com.Add a comment
