Currently the SparHawk mine in Poland, Maine is the most significant find of tourmaline in the world. What they are finding are minty green crystals that when cut possess a vibrant spring green color.
One hundred-ten years ago tourmaline was first discovered here in a farmer’s field. The discovery was so significant it made national headlines. After a year of mining then nothing, nothing, nothing. Nothing for 100 years, until a young guy came along with faith a and vision, bought the property, started mining and as they say, “the rest is history.”
