The crimson red "flesh" on this watermelon tourmaline crystal is very gemmy, and is surrounded by a green rind on the outside, giving it the appearance of a watermelon! This rare variety of tourmaline has become very scarce, and this is an excellent example in a large 185 carat size. This crystal is from a find in Brazil in the 1960s, only recently rediscovered in the basement of an old-time dealer who retired.
