Maine Tourmaline Lobster Claw Necklaces, Silver

I fought the lobster thing for years. I was fierce, like a lobster defending my territory. Customers asked about a claw and tourmaline June, July, August, September; they tried to buy at other times of the year too. They called every year, we got dozens of requests for Maine tourmaline set in a lobster claw.

Finally, I relented. We made one; it sold in a day. We made another one and it sold in a day or two. We made more, couldn’t keep up they sold so quickly. If I think about it, lobster is the #1 thing everyone who lives out of state wants to do first when they arrive…have a lobster. Add genuine Maine tourmaline, the state’s official gemstone….

1 lobster + 1 Maine tourmaline =
A perfect 10.
Clearly, the two together are a clear winner.

A lobster freshly pulled out of the ocean off the Maine coast is green in color. Steam a Maine coast lobster for 12 minutes, it turns pink-red. Our sterling silver lobster claw comes with a green or pink Maine Tourmaline, possessing two powerful symbols of Maine

This shows scale, both relative sizes and in comparison to a dime.
The dime is 18mm in diameter.

Where’s the Best Lobster Roll?

Being in lobster country you’d think we’d know the answer, but if you ask 10 Portland residents you’ll likely get 10 different recommendations.
There are too many variables to crown “the best” – toasted bun or plain roll, butter or mayo, simple or seasoned, warm or cold?

We offer our Cross staff favorites (most in the Portland area):

  • Baileys Lobster Pound, Scarborough – a lot of lobster at a good price
  • Jay’s Oyster Bar, Portland – a salty Maine bar experience
  • Bite into Maine at Fort Williams – creative rolls from a food truck
  • Huot’s Seafood Restaurant, Saco – near the beach
  • Lobster Shack at Two Lights, Cape Elizabeth – a roll with a view

If you have a favorite Maine lobster roll destination, it will always be with you as you sport a Maine Tourmaline Lobster Claw Pendant.

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.
