Crystal Talk in August
It's National Watermelon Day on the third and to celebrate this day in a cheeky way, let's dive into Watermelon Tourmaline!
I know it must seem like I'm on a Tourmaline train as last month Black and Champagne Tourmaline were on the frontline to offer us support during all the retrogrades, but I couldn't help and be a little bit out of the box. I had to seize the day when I saw it was Watermelon Day and all I could think of was Watermelon Tourmaline!
Watermelon Tourmaline is generally pink with green rind, just like a watermelon, and sometimes it's green with pink rind.
As a balancing stone, it brings together that beautiful feminine (pink) and masculine (green) energies, helping you to bring more balance to yourself. Maybe you need to be little more strict in your boundaries and say no, or maybe you need to soften and open your heart a little bit. It can help support you to remove insecurities if you're scared and it can help to inspire both creativity and practicality.
This is a stone associated with the Heart Chakra and also supports:
Watermelon Tourmaline makes room to be fun, to be outside of the box but to also be logical and if you're someone who needs a little more balance right now in whatever way in your life, this may be the stone to befriend with your Heart Chakra.
Watermelon Tourmaline tells me: "be sweet, be juicy, be delicious and have fun!"
Creative Crystal Blessings,

There has been some debate in regards to Satin Spar and Selenite. Are they they same? How do they differ? What do you need to look for to know which one you have? In this article and video I am going to teach you more about the differences and visually show you side by side these crystals so that you can easily tell which on you have in your collection.
Satin Spar: 2
Satin Spar: White.
Color and Mineral Content:
Selenite: Selenite is a transparent and colorless (or very lightly colored) variety of Gypsum that forms in distinct crystals. (source: minerals.net) The name ‘Selenite’ is mostly synonymous with Gypsum but has been used historically to describe the transparent variety, as opposed to Satin Spar Gypsum for the fibrous variety and Alabaster for the fine-grained massive form. (source: mindat.com) Selenite can be found as colorless, white, gray, brown, beige, orange, pink, yellow, light red, green. Selenite has the chemical composition CaSO4 · 2H2O (Hydrous calcium sulfate). (Click here to read more about Selenite/Satin Spar.)
Satin Spar: Satin Spar is a fibrous form of Gypsum. It is generally white, silky and translucent with pearly or milky appearance although you can also find peach/orange commonly sold as well. The name Satin Spar was first used for a variety of Calcite (Satin Spar Calcite). It has since been used to cover varieties of Aragonite and Selenite. It is best to use this name as an adjective in conjunction with a mineral name rather than as a specific variety name of its own (ie: Satin Spar Selenite). Satin Spar has the chemical composition of CaSO4 · 2H2O (Hydrous calcium sulfate). (Click here to read more about Selenite/Satin Spar.)
