Our butterflies are carved from world watermelon tourmaline, tourmaline found in various locations throughout the world. Most tourmaline comes from gems with a pink crystalline core and a green outer perimeter, although sometimes colors are reversed. Each tourmaline wing-set is delicate, light, and airy.
An inevitable first question that comes up is, “Do you make these with Maine tourmaline?” The answer is no. Fifty years ago it would have been possible, material for wings was available from Maine in the 1970’s. It’s long gone. In gems, when something is available, go for it. Just do it, because if you wait…it will be too late.

These are world butterflies made from the world’s most magical gem, tourmaline.
