A mother lode of tourmaline on a mountain in Newry, a billion dollar discovery of copper and zinc in Aroostook County, mammoth pockets of amethyst in Stowe, and nuggets found in the banks of Maine rivers are only a few of the adventures. For the beginner, there are easy to follow instructions. Many locations are listed, and seasoned miners share their experiences as they generously give advice and guidance.


Priscilla Chaverie was five years old when it all began. An old rose quartz site on her grandfather's farm ignited her curiosity. Long before the turn of the century, this quartz mine had produced crystals pure enough to be used for optical purposes...
And the adventures! The late afternoon and weekend trips to quarries with Dick Nevel as tutor, the hadfirst crawl into the tunnel at Newry to photograph a mother lode of tourmaline....
"Minerals are the flowers of the earth for me. I love the many shades of tourmaline. They are the flowers of God's Kingdom"

Professional Reviews

Maine Mining Adventures
'Stevens captures the drama with a polished and perceptive writing style. The result is a window in the world of mining in Maine."

Douglas Watts, 'Maine Times'

Maine Mining Adventures
"Seldom can a mineral collector find a book about people who make mineral discoveries. Here, then is a rare book...I recommend this book to all collectors of Maine minerals, especially those who don't live in the state. It presents a wonderful opportunity to get to know the collectors."
