ABOUT AMETRINE GEMSTONES
by Preston Reuther


 AMETRINE GEMSTONE RING

Ametrine, also known as trystine, is a bi-color gemstone occurring when amethyst and citrine colors are found in the same crystal of quartz. The gemstone ametrine thus contains yellow citrine and purple amethyst. It has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs Scale which makes it a great choice for any handcrafted jewelry creation.


The Anahi Mine in Bolivia is the major producer of ametrine gemstones, and it first became famous when a Spanish conquistador received it as a dowry when he married a princess from the Ayoreos tribe in the seventeenth century. The conquistador's gifts to the Spanish queen first introduced the gemstone to Europe.


Ametrine, most typically faceted in a rectangular shape with a half and half pairing of amethyst and citrine, is a very durable gemstone suited for a variety of jewelry uses. Most sizes and shapes are available but the color contrast is most pronounced in sizes over seven carats. Many artists like to play with the colors to create very interesting effects.


Ametrine is believed to have metaphysical properties that aid in meditation, relieve tension, disperse negativity, and help to eliminate prejudice as well as the metaphysical properties of both amethyst and citrine.
