Lying in bed in the morning watching the sky as the earth turns into the sun. The dawn sky can be the same six days in a row and then on the seventh a sky and cloud combination can appear that is like none that has ever come before or that I am ever likely to see again. Some dawns are red and gold, lemon and lime, some are dusty rose. A veiled curtain rising on a new day, spellbinding, breath taking, keeps me there for twenty, thirty minutes watching colors as they shift and change.
The gem, summer and to the east, the fore ground is a forest to the rising sun. Winter to the south the Atlantic with blue waves marks the separation of earth and sky. I see both seasons in this pendant.
Bicolor Maine tourmaline from the 1972 gem find on Plumbago Mountain, Newry, Maine. Dusty rose top, neutral cream white middle, teal green at base. Big emerald-cut gem surrounded with a frame of high white Ideal-cut diamonds.
Cross’s Maine Gem Museum Collection
In the art world after a great painting is completed it is always framed. The frame is the finishing touch. It enhances and focuses attention. We have selected from among our very finest Maine tourmaline the best color, cut and clarity… gems that simply glow. These we have surrounded with a gallery of pure white diamonds… to perfectly frame these great works of nature’s art. We call these works of gem art framed in diamonds Cross’s Museum Collection.

Our extended ninety days, for a small business, is almost unheard of. Truth is, we shop for gifts too, and rather than scrambling at the last minute and feeling the tension of time, we like this more relaxed approach. We wish everyone did something like this… it would be a kinder, gentler world.
