We all remember the Disney movie Alice in Wonderland, and the Cheshire cat on the branch, the big crescent moon smile, the mad toothy grin and the glow in the dark eyes, and Alice’s question, “Now which way ought I go?” The ring style comes from a ring we found in an estate collection. It was wild, untamed, totally mad and wonderful and we bought it. It had a large oval Aquamarine center and four uneven, non-matching colored side gems. We loved it and copied it all the way down to the Alice in Wonderland talking flowers.
First and foremost, it has a big gem center, a SparHawk Mint Green Teal Maine Tourmaline. Then crazy unmatched side tourmaline like mystical eyes; blue, medium pink, green and light pink. The big oval green is rare. I doubt another Maine tourmaline like it exists anywhere today. The Cheshire Cat Ring design is fine art jewelry certainly not like our more traditional classic Cross designs. Sometimes though, we step over a line into another dimension. A hundred years from now in the antique Road Show of the 22nd century someone will say to one of your descendants, “Do you realize what you have here…?” For now in the 21st century you get to wear it and be remembered for the wonderfully exotic jewelry you wore and cherished.
The Most Significant Find of Tourmaline
Anywhere in the World is Happening in Maine
One of Maine’s most famous tourmaline mines laid fallow for nearly 100 years, then a young guy came along with faith and vision, bought the property, and began exploring for gems again, and as they say, “The rest is history”.
We are pleased to report the old gem mine is now producing SparHawk Mint Green Teal Tourmaline – the world’s newest tourmaline find and at the moment the most important tourmaline discovery in the world.
SparHawk Mint Green Teal Tourmaline is a rare color of green, the result of a unique chemistry of the rock in this part of Maine. This chemistry has created the brightest, most brilliant gemmy green tourmaline we’ve ever had the privilege to offer.
Since this new discovery, we’ve created an amazing collection of SparHawk tourmaline jewelry. This is an exciting time in Maine history. We show many of our SparHawk pieces of jewelry online. To see our complete SparHawk tourmaline collection visit our store in Portland, Maine.
