We told you about the blue Christmas tree in Portland:
The City of Portland once had an all blue Christmas tree in Monument Square. It was a three story tall evergreen with hundreds of big blue lights. I thought it was the most beautiful Christmas tree I’d ever seen. Not everyone agreed. There were letters to the editor that this tree with its monochromatic presence in the middle of our city was a violation of the Christmas spirit, that Christmas trees were supposed to be multi-colored.
My perceived sense of exquisite beauty of this tree and the controversy that the color blue seemed to generate has always stayed with me. I found the solid blue color set against city lights and a black night sky to be mystical, mysterious, somehow speaking to events in the holy land two thousand years ago with far greater purity than a circus of color.
Now we’re going to ask you to imagine Christmas in Bermuda, Barbados or the Bahamas. I’ve never visited these islands in December. I imagine though, if they had a blue Christmas tree the blue of the bulbs would be a lighter shade of blue. This little collection is that lighter shade of tropical blue.
Note about Zircon: a natural gem that has a higher refractive index – which means as a cut and polished gem it sparkles like crazy. Its brilliance is so great it can even rival diamond.
