Bi-colour Tourmalines: a fantastical rainbow display in a gem
Tourmalines are nature’s one and only kaleidoscopic gemstone. They can be found in almost every tone known to man. Greens, reds, pinks, blues and purples. There’s truly an infinite array of possibilities! But arguably, the most intriguing kind of this species are the Bi-Tourmalines, or, Watermelon Tourmalines.
This special variety is a one-of-a-kind marvel of blending hues. When the variation in colour is displayed along the crystal’s length, they are classified as either bi or tri-coloured Tourmalines. However, if spotted concentrically – in the form of a pink core surrounded by a green rind, then you guessed it: this is a Watermelon Tourmaline.
Depending on the angle of view, this little wonder will reveal its shades in differing intensity. The deepest colour will inevitably appear along the main axis, something to be taken into consideration upon undergoing the cutting process.
An undeniable favourite in the jewellery world, they have become one of the most sought after gems, and we are definitely not immune to their fascinating magic!
