Pyramid Studios home is on the rocky coast of Maine–so tourmaline, the Maine State gem, holds a special place in our hearts and is a favorite of our jewelry designers. Tourmaline was the first gemstone mined in the United States by miners other than prehistoric man or Native Americans. Tourmaline mining began at Mount Mica, ME, in 1822 and, with starts and stops, has continued to the present.
Tourmaline is the traditional birthstone for October, the stone for the Zodiac sign of Leo, and the accepted gem for the 8th wedding anniversary. At Pyramid we love tourmaline because of the variety of colors, the hardness of the stone (it rates a 7 to 7.5 on the mohs’ scale), and the unique personality of each stone. The interior characteristics of each tourmaline give individual sparkle and flair. A flawless tourmaline is very rare and would actually be pretty boring.
