Mystery Mine, Blue Maine Tourmaline, Red Maine Garnet & Diamond Necklace

Style #: G4715

Mystery Mine

Yes, it’s a big blue. Yes, blue Maine tourmaline is rare. We’ve done something truly unusual here. We’ve set red Maine garnet in the north, east, south, and west positions. I’m going to share something bizarre with you. When you come to Maine and head up the coast on I-295, as you go beyond Brunswick, Maine you drive over the garnet mine at the side and under the road where these gems were found a couple of decades ago. Basketball-sized garnets were found in a farmer’s field adjacent to the highway. The outer quarter inch was gemmy. A local miner got permission, mined the crystals, then cut the gems. He went to the State of Maine and also got permission to mine the median strip. He did and he mined and cut more gems. We bought over 200 small garnets from him. Cross is the exclusive source for this beautiful gem from a crazy Maine gem miner. This piece looks great, especially because blue Maine tourmaline is so rare.

How many necklaces will we make? Perhaps just this one. Looking for some crazy bragging rights? Imagine if you will, driving up I-295 past Brunswick, and saying to your passengers, “Now prepare, we will in the next several miles be passing over a garnet mine!”

Can we tell you where it is/was? No, Mr. X never took us to the mine site, so the exact location remains a mystery. This is a choice collector’s necklace. Don’t let it pass you by.

Maine Tourmaline, A Maine Story
An American Gem

First discovered in 1820 and in subsequent finds over the years, these early discoveries put Maine on the world map as a source for high-quality tourmaline gems. A major discovery in 1972 on Plumbago Mountain in Newry, Maine established Maine as a significant world source of fine tourmaline gemstones.

Cross recognized the historical significance of this find and began working closely with the miners of these magnificent gems. The close partnership continues today with the ongoing discoveries in Maine’s western mountains.

100% Natural

We go to Maine’s gem mines. We know the miners. We know the gem cutters. We guarantee our tourmaline to be from Maine and is 100% natural. Cross maintains the largest collection of fine Maine tourmaline jewelry in the world.

Window of Opportunity

Fifty years have passed since the major 1972 tourmaline find in Newry, Maine where they found 3.5 million carats of tourmaline crystals. Over the years we bought more than we sold knowing that gem finds don’t last forever. There are now colors, sizes, and shapes that are extremely rare and, in some cases, no longer available. If you see something you love it’s best to act quickly. There’s no guarantee another gem like this one exists.

Case in point: In 2007 there was a find of tourmaline in Newry, Maine called Eureka Blue. People loved the color. The gems sold quickly, but the find was small and the mining only lasted a few seasons. Within three years of the discovery, all the large Eureka gems had sold. We still get calls from people who are now ready to buy. What they want, however, simply no longer exists from that find in 2007.

Gem finds are rare, especially in North America. Maine tourmaline is a piece of Maine and American history, it’s a connection to a place we all love, an exquisite creation of nature. Today, there is a rare opportunity to own a bit of Maine/American pride and heritage, and history in choosing a piece of Maine tourmaline jewelry.
