    Sandy1234...Newbie . Me thinks you either on the defense for one of these Shopping Channels or The MML mine owner, who likes to block anyone trying to sell Zultanite or Csarite on Ebay , to keep the prices artificially high. Because I have in my hot little hand a letter than MML are being investigated for the cleverest marketing of all time . The Turkish Diasapore started as Ottomanite and depending on which bank funded the mining at that time it was called different name , Ottomanite , Zultanite or Csarite . Because each bank put copy rights on the name and hence the name changes . Now the miner calls it good old Turkish Diasapore because on the investigation , probably

    Wireless, the mine originally had two co-owners. One kept the name of Zultanite and the other had to re-brand to Csarite. It is the same gemstone just marketed under two different names (3, if you look for Turkish Diaspore). There's no conspiracy, just depends when it was bought, who from and by whom!

    In terms of Alexandrite, it comes from various different locations including Tanzania. What is sold as Russian Alexandrite is highly likely to be from elsewhere as production in Russia was tiny and most is in specialised collections. There's a fabulous book all about Alexandrite and it goes into production amounts which is a real eye opener!

    Hope that helps.

    Hello Meesh, nice to see you posting. I was just thinking the other day that I hadn't seen anything from you for ages.

    Hope you're well.

Even big players in the gemstone market find it difficult to get this stone now so good ones are really "rare" and I don't use that word lightly. So if you have a good one, hang onto it. Don't be tempted to sell!!!!
    Think so far I have only drooled at your 6ct Alexandrite ring Meeshoo LOL
