Collection: Watermelon Tourmaline

Watermelon Tourmaline

All minerals within the tourmaline family are mixed crystals of aluminium boron silicate that also contain elements such as iron, manganese, sodium, lithium, or potassium. Tourmaline was first discovered in Brazil in the 16th century.  Originally the green crystals were initially confused with emerald. It was not until the 19th century that the mineral was classified as tourmaline!

The term tourmaline was derived from the Singhalese phrase tura mali, meaning “stone mixed with vibrant colours”, and the watermelon prefix refers to the unique colour combination that resembles the fruit of the same name. 

Watermelon Tourmaline is one of the most rare and collectible gems, and despite looking as if it can't possibly be a real gem, it is 100% natural.  

We are pleased to have these Brazilian specimens here at the shop, on the matrix!
