Ametrine General Gemstone Details

ˈa-mə-trīn
ametrine

Stone of Revealing Joy

This multi-colored gemstone has more than a double color, it seems also to have a double history and personality. Most geological references state that Ametrine was first brought to the gem market in the 1970s. Except there seems to be another story about this special crystal that dates back to the ancient Conquistadors stating quite a different story…

During the 17th century, a Conquistador named Don Felipe is said to have married Anakha, the princess to the Aureiros tribe of Bolivia. The mine, named for Anahi in reverence of the princess, was given to him as part of her dowry. When it came time for Felipe to return to Spain, his princess bride wished to return with him. But as the couple attempted to depart, angry tribesmen turned on them in anger and murdered the young princess. The dual colored gem is said to represent the princess’ two loyalties: to her husband as well as to her tribe.

Ametrine Scientific Properties

 

AmetrineMohs Hardness of 7 with a trigonal crystal structure

Also known as Trystine or by it’s trade name Bolivianite, Ametrine is a naturally occurring variety of quartz. It is a “mixture” of Amethyst and Citrine with zones of purple and of yellow or orange, but yet being a crystal of it’s own volition it is not just a mixture but a shade of it’s two cousins. Most commercially available Ametrine is found in the mines of Bolivia, although there have been some deposits found in Brazil as well as India.

The coloring is due to differing oxidation of iron states within the crystal itself, which occurs due to a temperature gradient across the crystal during the time of it’s formation. In order for the Iron to produce both colors within the same crystal, very specific conditions must be present.  Not only must there be two separate temperature conditions, they must also remain stable within the entire growth process of the crystal, which is an incredible feat indeed.

Geologists have theorized that within the Anahi mine, just the specific type of heat was flowing in the right direction across a portion of the crystal to create just enough heat to create the perfect balance of heat and cool for the Ametrines to be formed.  If the heat would have been any degree higher or lower these lovelies would have become either Amethyst or Citrines.  It is told that there are only two places on the planet with this specific heat index to create Ametrine gemstones, the original mine in Bolivia as well as the Hyderabad mine in India.

 

Ametrine Mystical Properties

ametrine

Ametrine is said to have all the metaphysical properties of both Amethyst and Citrine combined, as well its own unique properties. Ametrine energies are said to stimulate the intellect and rid the aura of negative energy.

Ametrine will help one recognize the divinity within all, thus eliminating prejudice. It helps release old programs in the mind and attunes one to higher states of consciousness in meditation.

For those engaged in what may be considered mundane activities, Ametrine teaches one to balance physical activities with one’s spiritual hunger. Workaholics learn to pause and enjoy the fruits that one’s labors provide. Procrastinators discover the empowering joy of fully completing a task and the rewards one reaps when a goal is finally achieved. Those that walk among the clouds suddenly find purpose in touching the Earth.

If one walks with fear, Ametrine will reveal the hidden warrior within. If one moves with detailed precision, executing well thought out plans, Ametrine will reveal the power of serendipity and the joy from taking a chance.

When eyes are blind to the plight of others, Ametrine will help bring the connection and responsibility we share with every resident of our planet.

Ametrine teaches one these simple, unrelenting connections. There is no life without death. One cannot know joy if one has not known sadness. This is the duality of the Ametrine.

 

Healing Properties of Ametrine

Physically, Ametrine is said to strengthen the nerves, promoting the supply of oxygen to the body and assisting the healing process after a serious illness.  Ametrine is told to stimulate brain activity and enhance the wearer’s creativity and emotional well being.

When physically ill, an Ametrine elixir may assist in removing toxins from the body, lessening or alleviating ache from fever, congestion, and generally feel less miserable, if one carries the gem while sick.  Worn on or about the neck, or near the thyroid gland it is said to reduce trembling sweating and blushing as well.

Generally known to combat hardening of arteries, dementia, deafness and general eye complaints. It is said that one preparing for artificial implants or limbs, as well as organ implants may find that Ametrine is a stone that may assist the body in becoming more accepting of the new/foreign object and assisting in the healing afterwards.

During meditations with Ametrine, one may achieve a quicker calm, allowing an easier access to alternative states, new perceptions, ideas and portals to new dimensions, and assisting in discovering one’s greatest potential. Ametrine is told to enhance universal equilibrium, providing a clear connection between the physcial plane and the ultimate state of perfections.

Ametrine is very much its own crystal, with its own dramatic formation process, its own unique energies and its own story.

The ametrine’s duality makes it a powerful companion for creative, healing and psychic workings. Purple and gold/yellow are opposite of each other on the color wheel, and yet are very complimentary to each other. A royal purple robe is even more stunning when decorated with gold trim.

In this one crystal one may utilize the cool dark powers of the purple night and the bright warm strength of the sunny day. If one performs readings, work in the astral plane, wish to communicate with spirits, energies and guides in alternative worlds, Ametrine is extremely effective at opening these psychic doorways. It will provide protection on the journey through these unfamiliar landscapes, and light one’s way back to familiar ground. Ametrine will help keep one safe from psychic attack while on journeys as well.

Chakra Classification for Ametrine

AmetrineAmetrine is said to disperse negative energy from the aura and then filling the void with pure light of stabilizing and energizing qualities.  Often one that has been emotionally damaged may be unconsciously unwilling to release the damage that has occurred, preferring to feel the pain of the injury rather than facing the prospect of feeling nothing at all.  Ametrine’s dual nature makes it a very effective tool for removing blockages of any chakra, assisting in achieving a healthy physical and emotional balance.

Ametrine should be used with caution during one’s meditation as it is known to greatly enhance concentration as well as intuition; although if used too long, it may lead to inner imbalances.  Related to both the 1st, Root Chakra, as well as the 7th, Crown Chakra it is helpful in bridging the gap between the chakras, balancing and aligning to assist in ascending to perfect balance
