There is a variety of tourmaline that is called water melon tourmaline. This is because of the inner pink / red and outer green layer, making it resemble a slice of water melon.
Tourmaline is normally included, so the clarity of this slice is rather pleasant. The rough of this slice could have been wide but the green layer wasn't thick enough to make a faceted piece of water melon tourmaline.
The next probable thing is that this piece should be cut some time back. Such a piece during modern times would not make sense as the price of pink tourmaline with such a saturated colour would be high and very valuable.
This piece of water melon tourmaline slice is unique and with the help of a creative jewellery designer, you would be able to create a beautiful jewellery piece.
