Making Maine Memories in May

Students gather around Seam Sweeney to learn how gemstones are cut.

May is going to be a wonderful month in the state of Maine and I will be directly involved.

The new Maine Mineral and Gem Museum in Bethel, Maine is open for business and is much anticipated must-visit site in this great Gem State. With Dr. Carl Francis as curator and a wonderful staff running a research lab under the direction of Dr. Skip Simmons, formerly of the University of New Orleans, the Museum is already making its mark. I have not been there yet so I’ll visit as part of a three-stage adventure in Maine during the month of May. After all, Maine’s pegmatite gem mines are world famous. We featured these gem mines a few years ago when we visited Mount Mica, Maine as part of the video “Gemstones of America”, which included mines in Maine, California, Oregon, Arizona, and Montana.
