This special gem is a Type 3 gem, meaning it will almost always have visible inclusions. These inclusions give the gem deep character and uniqueness. Tourmaline is the birth stone for those born in October.
A distinctive quality of tourmaline gems is the presence of two or more colors in a gem. Gems possessing these qualities are referred to as "bicolored" or "tricolored" gems. Watermelon tourmaline is one such example. Bearing the colors often seen in watermelons - pink and green!
