Can cabochons be made out of small watermelon tourmaline crystals?I have a few small watermelon tourmaline crystal fragments and am wondering if they could be made into cabs.

Watermelon tourmaline is usually cut into slices to get the most weight out of the rough. If you're ok with losing more weight, there's no reason not to make some cabochons. I found a watermelon tourmaline cab on etsy, so it's definitely possible!
