Gold Watermelon Tourmaline Delicate Necklace
Rare, unusual and unique, these handmade sterling silver 18k gold plated October birthstone necklaces feature handpicked raw watermelon tourmaline slices!
A natural wonder found in Brazil, Watermelon Tourmaline is classed as a Bi-Colour semi-precious mineral because of its natural fusion of greens and pinks. This diffusion of colour is due to elements of copper present during the structural formation of the stone.
Tourmaline is highly regarded because of its rarity and range of colours. The most coveted and valuable Tourmalines show a marked translucency whilst maintaining a high pigmentation of colour, as can be seen with this superior range of slices.
Watermelon Tourmaline has to have a specific colour formation to be given its name – the stones must have a green surround and a pink centre in order to be able to be classed as the rare watermelon variety.
