Watermelon Tourmaline is a form of tourmaline that consists of a green or blue rind (outer-band) and a pink or red centre.
Shades may vary from sample to sample but the most common combination of colours resembles those of a watermelon, hence the name. This is a particularly beautiful and interesting crystal, though it can be relatively expensive, even for just a small piece.
Watermelon Tourmaline is sometimes associated with:
- accessing wider perspectives, such as perception beyond the immediate "seriousness" of an experience or situation
- appreciating the good in or benefits of experiences or situations
- facilitating experience and enjoyment of the beauty of nature
- activating, sometimes described as a "super activator" of the heart chakra
