May 1: Normally a day that passes with nothing significant happening.
But May 1, of 2011 was different. On that day, Dennis Durgin, owner/miner of Mt. Marie in Paris, ME found a pocket of tourmalines that are stunning.
This pendant features one of them. It is a cushion square shape and it measures 10 mm and weighs 4.41 carats. It was hand faceted by Derek Katzenbach of Farmington, ME. The mounting is sterling silver with a bezel of 14K yellow gold around the stone.
