The Crystal of the Day for Tuesday 10 December 2013 is Watermelon Tourmaline in correspondence with Mars, today’s planet. The watermelon tourmaline is a rare variety that displays three different colours in the same crystal – green (the skin of the watermelon), pink (the sweet fruit) and white (the rind). As in the gem stone ametrine, the colors of the watermelon tourmaline occur 100% naturally. This is a rare occurence in nature.
