Local Gems at Harvest Gold!

As many of you know Harvest Gold uses mostly Maine harvested local gemstones. We have some new rings to be debuted.

First of our new creations is a 4.5 carat Heliodor ring, mined in Chatham, New Hampshire. Set in 14K white and yellow gold band. It is a one of a kind piece. Heliodor are more rare out of the Maine gemstones. Heliodor comes from the Greek words for sun, “helios”, and gift, “doron”, thus Heliodor can be translated as “gift of the sun”. It is said that Heliodor can increase self-confidence and self-belief. It’s also claimed that meditating with the stone can awaken one’s ‘inner flame’, thus enabling one to find their self worth and their place in the grand scheme of things. It is also associated with the astrological sign of Leo.

Watermelon Tourmaline in the tourmaline family are some of the best known local gemstones, we carry many watermelon tourmaline pieces. Including these two new beautiful gemstone rings. The 4ct rose colored watermelon tourmaline is beautifully set in a rose gold prong setting on a yellow gold band and is backed in white gold to enhance the natural color of the gem. It is currently a size 7 and can be sized slightly up or down. The greener tinted 3ct watermelon tourmaline is beautifully set in a green gold prong setting in 14K white gold back with a yellow gold band. This ring is set with an up-cycled 8 pt diamond. It is currently a size 6 and can be sized slightly up or down. Both of these tourmalines were locally mined in Newry, Maine. The watermelon tourmaline is a rare variety that displays three different colors in the same crystal - green (the skin of the watermelon), pink (the sweet fruit) and white (the rind). The colors of the watermelon tourmaline occur 100% naturally. This is a spectacular occurrence in nature. What can a watermelon tourmaline do for you? Attract love, remove imbalances (and guilt) caused by conflicts and confusion, and the green part feeds your life force, while the pink soothes and harmonizes. All of the tourmalines are used for their strong healing energies. The watermelon variety is used by crystal healers to encourage a calm, centered state of mind.

Amethyst the birthstone of February, is another locally mined gem. This stone used for this ring was mined in Sweden, Maine.This amethyst is set in a 14 K yellow gold band with white gold backing and a green gold bezel to enhance the natural red and blue hues. The ring is currently a size 6 and can be sized slightly up or down. Crystalline quartz in shades of purple, lilac or mauve is called amethyst, a stone traditionally worn to guard against drunkeness and to instill a sober mind. The word amethyst comes from the Greek meaning "without drunkenness" and amethyst is believed to protect one from poison. It is used as a dream stone and to help insomnia. Ancient Egyptians used the amethyst guard against guilty and fearful feelings. It has been worn as protection from self-deception, as well as a protection against witchcraft. . It is also used as a meditation aid. The amethyst is known as the Bishop's Stone and is still worn by Catholic Bishops. The amethyst symbolizes piety, humility, sincerity and spiritual wisdom. It is thought the amethyst is the perfect stone to symbolize The Age of Aquarius. Amethyst is a gemstone often worn by healers, as it has the power to focus energy.
