Watermelon Tourmaline is a unique variety of tourmaline that received its name due to its distinct coloration, reminiscent of a watermelon’s vibrant hues. The crystal typically appears as a long, slender prism with a hexagonal cross-section. Its outer layer showcases a vibrant green coloration, resembling the rind of a watermelon. Within this green layer lies a core of pink or sometimes red, resembling the juicy, inner flesh of the fruit. The transition between the two colors is usually well-defined and occurs in a beautiful gradient, evoking a captivating visual resemblance to an actual watermelon.
Very rare gemstone.
