Though it is not a gem crystal, this watermelon tourmaline shows some nice transparency and gemminess, so you can see the red core running the entire length of the crystal when it is backlit.  The tourmaline is partially gemmy, and the colors are similar to a watermelon: a dark green rind, then dark red flesh on the inside. And, there are no seeds! The outside is dotted with some lavender-purple lepidolite, which gives it nice color contrast. This is a highly aesthetic and very good example of a watermelon tourmaline crystal.
