Ametrine gemstones are also known as Trystine or by its trade name as Bolivianite, are a naturally occurring variety of quartz. This gemstone is a mixture of Amethyst and Citrine with zones of purple and yellow or orange. Almost all commercially available Ametrine gems are mined in Bolivia, although there are deposits being exploited in Brazil and India.The colour of the zones visible within this gem are due to differing oxidation states of iron within the crystal. The different oxidation states occur due to there being a temperature gradient across the crystal during its formation.
Legend has it that Ametrine was first introduced to Europe by a conquistador's gifts to the Spanish Queen, after he received the Anahi mine in Bolivia as a dowry.
Ametrine is a very durable gemstone suited to a variety of jewellery uses. Most sizes and shapes are available but the colour contrast is most pronounced in sizes of over seven carats. Ametrine is said to have all the metaphysical properties of both Amethyst and Citrine combined, as well its own unique properties; aids in meditation, relieves tension, disperses negativity and helps to eliminate prejudice.
