I'm guessing (and this is just a guess) that you are talking about a piece of Tourmaline- most likely Watermelon Tourmaline.

Google Search "Watermelon Tourmaline"  for similar photos  or you can see if this link https://crystal-cure.com/facet-tourmaline-watermelon.html looks similar to your stone.

 

The colors of Watermelon Tourmaline are generally..."a rare variety of tourmaline that displays three different colors in the same crystal - green (the skin of the watermelon), pink (the sweet fruit) and white (the rind)."  (see Crystal Cure Link).

 

Here's more photos of Watermelon Tourmaline : http://www.mineralminers.com/html/tmcgems.stm

 

Hope this helps!
