Extraordinary Checkerboard Faceted Watermelon Tourmaline Stones - I am fortunate to have amassed a very large collection of tourmalines - they are my favorite stone - and one of nature's most powerful natural creations. It is rare to find these faceted stones in these sizes - and I am offering them at a reasonable price!
Tourmalines are formed in areas where volcanoes have produced magma. This magma is cooled, with large empty cracks. The cracks will then be naturally filled with water and minerals such as iron, lithium or magnesium. Overtime, these will then turn into crystals of tourmaline - and the watermelon effect is caused when trace elements change during the crystal’s growth, by concentration or composition. The crystal will start out in a variety of pink shades but then end up turning into greens and (rarest of all) blues. This type of tourmaline can be found in Brazil, Nigeria, Madagascar, Afghanistan and the United States.
