Watermelon Tourmaline

Christine and Jack recently attended the Tucson Gem Fair with one goal… to came back with some gorgeous goodies.  Well, we are happy to report Mission Accomplished!  Introducing our new collection of Sliced Watermelon Tourmaline.

Tourmaline gemstones can be found in all colors of the rainbow. Most tourmaline gemstones display two or more colors in a single stone (or two tones of the same color). Tourmaline crystals that exhibit green on one end and pink to red on the other, with a band of white in the middle are marketed as ‘Watermelon Tourmaline’.  Each one of these pieces has a hand-made mounting because no two watermelon tourmaline are shaped the same.

In general, tourmaline is said to be a powerful detoxification stone that invites positive energy. It is also a birthstone for those born in October.
