Watermelon Tourmaline

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
