This stone has good Brilliance, and is cut and polished beautifully.

It is one of the most RARE colors of Tourmaline. It is a deep rich ROYAL purple. This beautiful stone comes for the Sapo Mine in Brazil. Tourmaline from Sapo are very hard to find, The Sapo mine is one of the most famous Tourmaline Mines in Brazil. In the late nineties, the tri-colored blue cap tourmaline pocket was found, and very few tourmalines were mined with this coloration.

The color is so magical and in such short supply that even moderately included material is acceptable for cutting faceted or cabochon stones, and can be a good investment for the future, sin ce it is so rare.

The tourmaline family of gemstones is quite large and tourmalines can be one of many different colors, or they can have two different colors on the same stone and be classified as bi-colored. Watermelon tourmaline is a rare form of tourmaline that exhibits up to three different colors which are similar to those of watermelons. The watermelon tourmaline crystal consists of a green color which would be indicative of a watermelon’s outer skin. Also present, is a pinkish red color that resembles the inner part of a watermelon. At times, there is a white color that will separate the green from the pink/red, and the white has a resemblance to a watermelon’s rind. The green and pink/red placement will differ by stone. Green will not always be on the outside. Some times the colors will do a flip flop. If the white (rind) band is not present, the gemstone is sometimes called a bi-colored tourmaline.

Some of tourmaline healing properties are:
* Attract love
* Balance the male and female energies within yourself
* Remove imbalances (and guilt) caused by conflicts and confusions
* The green part feeds your life force, while the pink soothes and harmonizes

All of the tourmalines are used for their strong healing energies. The watermelon variety is used by crystal healers to encourage a calm, centered state of mind.

Watermelon tourmaline is a 100% naturally occurring gemstone. It is not Dyed or treated or enhanced in any way.
