Can you imagine finding a crystal the size of a pumpkin?!?  While it doesn't happen often, it did happen on October 7, 1989 at the Bennett Mine in Buckfield, Maine. Ron and Dennis Holden found what became known as the "Rose of Maine", the largest Morganite crystal found in North America.  It weighed over 50 pounds and yielded an unknown (but finite) amount of gem rough.

The "rose" in the center of this floral ring weighs 1.53 carats and measures 8.2 x 6.2 mm.  The ring is made with 14K rose gold. The morganite was cut by Lloyd McConaghy, who lived in Florida.
