One of America's first and most storied gem deposits are the Tourmaline finds around Paris, Maine.  This area continues to produce gem rough and the stones are tailor made for US locale collectors.  Much of the material is tightly controlled and funneled through local outlets, so we rarely offer these.  This stone is a bright and fine stone in a very saturated, intense pink hue - a color that might initially make one think of California rather than Maine.  The cutting is quite excellent and, despite a few of the typical inclusions, the stone is quite bright and brilliant.  Considerably less expensive than some sources!.
