The Roebling Mine in New Milford, Connecticut was at one time among the world’s foremost sources for gem-grade Heliodor, and the only reliable source of photostable, earth mined, saturated yellow hues. Green Beryl and Aquamarine were also recovered in significant quantities. Although the mine has been closed for decades and is off-limits to collecting, we managed to obtain a few select pieces.
