This is a very brilliant, lively gem from Maine and it's unique color (for tourmaline) resembles the famous blue/green Paraiba tourmaline from Brazil. The photo does not properly capture the unique green/blue look of the stone. Jerry obtained the rough from an old time dealer from Maine who was at the Quartzsite Gem Shows this January, on his way to the big Tucson Shows with an old rough collection. The pattern is an enhanced (by Jerry) Hexbar Oval by Robet Strickland with 89 facets.
