We’re 50-feet above sea level, 300 feet back. In the summer, we have breakfast on the oak terrace. For three years she walked her two white dogs precisely at 8:45 every morning down on the road looping the freshwater marsh.
Nancy would say, “The goddess is on the road.” I’d put my paper down. She was not dressed like anyone I’ve ever known. She was not dressed for dog walking. She was a runway model at 100 yards. She was tall, young. She wore long flowing skirts in light colors, and she held a good pace with her matching dogs. Her posture was impeccable. I would have sworn she had just stepped off of Mt Olympus. If it was just she who walked through the park we would have noticed, add the two graceful hounds on leashes of equal length, and it was an opening to a French foreign film.
Nancy was as interested with her as I was. At the end of three years, we no longer saw her. I’m surprised neither of us thought to go down on the road and pass her in the opposite direction and just say good morning. We knew the time, 8:45. We never met her; we could have. Some things we put off and then it’s too late.
Recently I said to Nancy, “I have a question about 8:45. remember how our nickname for her was ‘the goddess’?”
Nancy said yes.
“We have a ring called The Triple Goddess of the Crescent Moon. What would you think about a story of the goddess walking in the park?”
Nancy said, “Sounds perfect.”
The Goddess of the Crescent Moon is one of our most elegant rings. We make it when we have an extra special gem. I wish we had a hundred gems that qualified. We save special gems just for this ring. The gem must have superlative color. It must have precise cutting. Its clarity must be top notch.
I’ve always dreamed of a gem find like this. To have this mine be so close to home, just 28 miles north of our store in the mountains of western Maine, is amazing. Gems so fine, so pure, with colors so vivid. It’s important someone documents this historic gem find here in Maine, because it’s a history-making discovery in the world of gems.
The video above is 1:43. It gives you a good idea of the excitement we feel for the gems we are discovering here in Maine.
Maine has been world-famous for the tourmaline gems mined here for over 200 years. The geology in our western mountains has yielded a treasure trove of world class gems. Cross Jewelers has been the Maine state leader, bringing fine Maine tourmaline jewelry to all of America for over 100 years.
We have over 200 pieces of Maine tourmaline jewelry from both the SparHawk mine and other Maine mines.
Two options for deeper Maine gem mine understanding:
A.) The 32-page written story of the 2013 gem mining season at the SparHawk mine.
b.) A collection of gem mining videos at the SparHawk mine.

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.
