This year marks the 50th anniversary of what would become one of North America’s largest gem tourmaline discoveries at the Dunton Quarry. To celebrate, the museum will look at the historical material through modern artists and jewelry creations using historic tourmalines found during that period. This celebration is called The Big Find: A Legend Continues. The jewelry collection will then be showcased during a runway extravaganza, The Big Reveal, on October 8th.
To prepare for The Big Reveal, we want to invite you to join us for a conversation about the basics of jewelry, gemstones, and the industry here in Maine. MMGM’s Store Manager, Maggie, will lead the discussion and answer any questions you may have.
