Watermelon Tourmaline is a type of Tourmaline that has a pink center and green perimeter around the outside, resembling a watermelon and its rind. This is one of the very few stones where you can see the formation process etched into the mineral. As the Pink Tourmaline in the center was forming and thickening, exposure to additional minerals such as manganese and lithium caused the stone to change color over time. This special Tourmaline was discovered at a mine in Newry, Maine in 1902, but can be found in Nigeria, Madagascar, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Australia, and Brazil.
Watermelon Tourmaline is the perfect stone to help one combat anxiety and depression that may push one into a dark or sad place. This stone offers up light, love, and rejuvenation to help keep one's heart and mind imbued with joy, general happiness, being more adventurous, having increased daily energy, self-love, and confidence are all brought out when wearing or carrying Watermelon Tourmaline.
