Watermelon Tourmaline Properties

watermelon tourmaline meaning

Watermelon Tourmaline is a Tourmaline crystal that has a unique appearance that resembles a watermelon with a Pink Tourmaline center and Green Tourmaline around the outside edges.

The center Pink Tourmaline is a different color than the Green Tourmaline edges due to additional manganese and lithium minerals being present that turned the color pink as it aged and cured.

First discovered in Newry, Maine back in 1902, it is now mined in Afghanistan, Australia, Brazil, Madagascar, Nigeria, and Sri Lanka. Brazil is actually known to have the highest quality Watermelon Tourmaline.

Watermelon Tourmaline Chemical Formula: Ca(Li2Al)Al6(Si6O18)(BO3)3(OH)3F

Watermelon Tourmaline Hardness: 5 – 7 (Mohs scale)

Watermelon Tourmaline Metaphysical Properties


In its pink and green hues, Watermelon Tourmaline echoes both colors of the heart chakra together in harmony. An incredible balancing stone, this crystal brings harmony to the heart space which spreads throughout all your relationships and your whole life.

Your heart chakra is about giving and receiving- love, acceptance, value, and respect. And Watermelon Tourmaline opens up this in-and-out flow within your heart, helping you give and receive more compassion, grace, understanding, and loving communication in your life.

It’s a great stone to use after you’ve done a lot of heart cleansing and clearing, releasing old stuck emotions. Then Watermelon Tourmaline can come in to maintain the ebb and flow of energy in your heart space, to keep it balanced and harmonious so that it doesn’t become flooded or blocked ever again.

Hold or wear a crystal over your heart and imagine its vibrant pink and green flame around your heart chakra, moving and flowing in and out of it, keeping the energy of love and compassion ever-flowing from you and to you as you move through your day.

Healing Properties


Whenever you’re feeling downtrodden, heart-heavy, or unbalanced in your life, Watermelon Tourmaline offers emotional support and upliftment to help you smile again.

It’s a great stone to use after a break-up, losing a job, or any emotional upset, especially if you find yourself questioning your self-worth. Watermelon Tourmaline will remind you of your intrinsic value, of the love and respect you deserve and help you move into new relationships and opportunities that align with that.

Cleanse & Recharge

The perfect match to cleanse Watermelon Tourmaline’s energy is to let it sit outside in nature, especially when there’s a rainbow out! It thrives on that sort of dualistic energy of sun and showers together as one, so if you ever spot a rainbow while you’re near your tourmaline, let it sit outside and soak the beautiful vibrations up! 

For more regular cleansing, leaving your Watermelon Tourmaline to rest on the dewy grass or buried under the soil for the night is a great way to clear and recharge its energy.

You can also give it a quick rinse under some water, or run in through the smoke of some incense for a quickie cleanse whenever you need it.
