If you've always wanted to collect your own gems and visit the famous gem miunes of Oxford county Maine, here's your chance. Visit the Maine Pegmatite workshop web site and explore all the options along with the link to Coromoto, It's all about Mt Mica.
I've made it to 6 worksho[ps and hope to attend again. It's a once in a lifetime chance to see gem mining first hand and meet some real people from the world of Pegmatites. And have one of the most memorable evenings listening to Frank Perham and Gary Freeman.
The web site tells it all

That sounds outstanding. Skip Simmons is very knowledgeable and entertaining. Unfortunately, I will be at the GIA Symposium & Gemological Research Conference, which also has the benefit of being close to my house...

Have fun!
