Ametrine is a transparent crystals that is composed of silicon dioxide and is a member of the Quartz group of minerals. Ametrine appeared on the market in the early 1980s, and at first many had doubts about it being a natural quartz variety and not some fancy artificial product.
The only known and well confirmed location for ametrine is an area in Bolivia near the Brazilian border.
There are similar specimens in India, and Brazil.
Ametrine crystals are made of alternating sectors of purple and yellow to an orange colour. Slabs cut perpendicular to the c axis of the crystal look a bit like a pinwheel with three sectors of purple and three sectors of yellow.
Ametrine is in a sense much more an amethyst than it is citrine. As in amethyst, the colour of the violet sectors is caused by the presence of iron built into its crystal framework as a replacement for silica and subsequent irradiation from radioactive elements. As in citrine, the colour of the yellow sectors is caused either by inclusions of iron compounds or by iron ions built into the crystal lattice. The concentration of iron is much higher in the yellow than in the violet sectors.
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.
Ametrine and Energy
Ametrine blends masculine and feminine energy – the masculine energy of citrine, and the feminine energy of amethyst.
