Milenyum Mining Co. of Turkey handles the mining of
Zultanite™ gemstones at a remote location in the Anatolian
mountains of Turkey directly from the host rock at an altitude
exceeding 1000 meters.
Tons of ore needs to be extracted to be able to reach these
amazing crystals. With no electricity or running water, it is
extremely difficult to mine at this remote location as the
nearest village is 7 miles away.
The Turkish deposit remains the world's only source of
Zultanite™ (color-change, gem quality diaspore). Genuine
Zultanite™ is recovered using only environmentally safe mining
techniques. The miners that work there are all housed and fed
by our company. We have had a very positive economic impact on
the lives of the miners and the surrounding community.
