In August, the clouds build up in the white mountains. They are smoky white, pure white, curling, swirling a mile, two, three high to the very top. On the farm we could see them building. They would become so big that the undersides would go dark, charcoal dark. The sun in the late afternoon would cast deep shadows on the east side. They were like Everest mountains moving to the sea.
You could smell the storm coming. You could hear it miles away. As it got closer, it created a deep roar coming across the hills. It was night within, no rain yet, with bolts of lightning flashing in the west. Mother would run through the house shutting windows. One of us kids would take the laundry off the clothesline. We’d close the lawn umbrella and lay it on the lawn, roll car and truck windows up, try to get everything loose in and secure before the wind and rain. Some storms were pure fury. Usually it was a half-hour, felt like the Earth was shaking. After the storm, there were leaves everywhere wet, plastered on the car and driveway going every which way.
This is an August green SparHawk Maine tourmaline. Brilliant quilt-top faceting. Leaves, wet leaves, in gold going every which way across the surface of the ring. Smooth, all surfaces solid, it can’t be blown away.
We have one ring. It takes an exact size cushion-cut gem. The twin dilemma, if you needed a second one it could be months. The gem size must be exact. Even though the gem mine is still active, they laugh if I say I want a gem in exact measurements because they know the crystals are too valuable to cut on demand. Rare fine gems will always be cut to the biggest, best size from any crystal.
This is is a bigger ring, a ring of substance and presence like those magnificent powerful summer storms. This is a rare, beautiful ring.
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.
