The earth shares its bounty with the world in the form of watermelon tourmaline gemstones, strung on this long necklace. The artisans of Joias do Rio craft the extra-long strand with polished chips of tourmaline in shades both rosy and verdant. This type of tourmaline is so named because the crystals are naturally reddish-pink at one end and green at the other end. Frequently there is even a whitish "rind" separating the two colors.
My best friend just opened this today as her birthday gift, and she loved it! Turns out watermelon tourmaline is one of her favorite minerals. As a geologist, I love this artist's jewelry for the wonderful minerals it incorporates!
