Ametrine is actually not a single unique mineral – it’s two minerals mixed together! As you might be able to guess from its name, these two minerals are amethyst and citrine, which are both forms of quartz. Ametrine’s abrupt colour transition reflects slight fluctuations in temperature and pressure during its formation. Depending on these factors, iron impurities could lead to the formation of amethyst or citrine zones within a quartz stone.
With the combination of physical citrine and cerebral amethyst, this stone brings together the physical and psychic worlds as no other stone can. Ametrine blends masculine and feminine energy – the masculine energy of citrine, and the feminine energy of amethyst. Ametrine is one of the very few imaginable crystals that actually link a stone with a very earthy/fiery energy with one that has a highly spiritual and intellectual energy. Ametrine is useful for keeping the mind focused and alert when studying or learning.
