20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Pink Maine Tourmaline & Diamond Necklace

Item #: F8237

The book was in our family library. I never opened it, and if I did, it felt too daunting to read. The cover, however, fascinated me. I studied it hundreds of times, thought about how deep a league was and what the octopus really looked like through the big round window. Jules Verne didn’t pull me in, but the artist certainly caught the eye of the ten-year-old me.

20,000 Leagues
Under the Sea

The book was in our family library. I never opened it, and if I did, it felt too daunting to read. The cover, however, fascinated me. I studied it hundreds of times, thought about how deep a league was and what the octopus really looked like through the big round window. Jules Verne didn’t pull me in, but the artist certainly caught the eye of the ten-year-old me.

Maine Tourmaline
20,000 Leagues
Under the Sea

Fast forward sixty years, as I studied two of our Maine tourmaline pieces, I was transported back to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea when I flipped the tourmaline pieces over and saw the pattern of the structure on the back side. Suddenly, I was ten again and deep beneath the sea. I live next to the ocean now, and scan the surface to see if I can catch a lost whale or an errant sea monster from my spot on the shore. I’ve not caught one yet. 

So, back to the tourmaline pieces: somewhere out there, beyond Jewel Island, the Crescent of Maine Gems ends beneath the sea. Its location is the same place I look for my whales and creatures of the deep.
This pink Maine tourmaline has a halo of diamonds surrounding the gem on the front side and big windows in gold on the back side. I can’t look at this pieces without seeing the cover of Jules Verne’s book, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea from the 1950’s.

 

The women in our store will insist that I not say this but, the tourmaline is an oval “squid pink” gem like the squid as seen through the submarine window. It’s a nice 1.77 carat oval gem from the 1972 discovery on Plumbago Mountain in western Maine. It’s been 48 years since a major find of pink tourmaline has been found in Maine. Pink tourmaline’s rarity makes this piece a highly desirable treasure.
