High-quality tourmaline crystals have been found at the Havey Quarry in Maine. Most are a deep bluish-green color. Faceted by American lapidary artist, Larry Woods, this modified rectangular cut gem weighs 30.62 ct and was cut from a crystal that weighed approximately 15 g. The crystal pictured with the gem is also from the Havey Quarry and a good representation of gem-quality rough.
