Ametrine, also known as trystine or by its trade name as bolivianite, is a naturally occurring variety of quartz. It is a mixture of amethyst and citrine with zones of purple and yellow or orange. Almost all commercially available ametrine is mined in Bolivia.
Crystal system: Hexagonal
Crystal habit: 6-sided prism ending in 6-sided pyramid (typical)
Color: Purple, Yellow

It is possible that the first appearance of ametrine in Europe was when Spanish conquistadors brought it back from Bolivia. Although it is also possible that it simply was not recognized as anything except a mix of amethyst and citrine in Europe until especially impressive pieces were brought back from the Americas.

Ametrine is formed when tiny iron particles locked inside the matrix of the quartz crystals begin to oxidize at different rates.

This is usually due to differences in temperature between the two different parts of the stones.

As you can imagine, this is a very unique and unusual situation to occur in the natural world!

Because of this, when ametrine was first discovered, it was highly prized as a truly unique stone.

However, a stone having different degrees of heat applied to it is a very easy situation to recreate in a lab. Meaning that ametrine is easily and readily made synthetically.

MetaphysicsAmetrine is a powerful combination of Amethyst and Citrine, connecting physical and spiritual realms. The Amethyst part of Ametrine can help one experience Divine Guidance, while the Citrine aspect allows for this guidance to be assimilated into one’s life.

Ametrine can be used to enhance creativity and learning, and can therefore help those who use it to come up with creative solutions to difficult problems whether work-related or personal.

Many people use Ametrine for stress-relief, and as such, it is optimally placed in areas where one would need it the most, i.e. in an office or cubicle, in the car, in a pocket, or wherever you find yourself under stress. Metaphysically, it is good for opening the Third Eye Chakra.

Ametrine helps to remove negativity from the physical body as well as the auric field, filling the area with the light and energy of love and healing. It will also assist in removing blockages from all bodies (physical, mental, spiritual, etc.).
