Ametrine is a unique gemstone. The stone comes from two minerals being mixed together, being Amethyst and Citrine. As you may have guessed, the name is actually a combination of the two stones that Ametrine derives from. The color of Ametrine is a mixture of yellow Citrine and purple Amethyst blends. Other names for the Ametrine gemstone include Trystine or Bolivianite. The latter name comes from the fact that just about all Ametrine mined today is unearthed in Bolivia.
If you’re interested in the technical specifications of Ametrine then they are as follows:
Mineral Information: Quartz group
Chemical Composition: SiO2
Color: Purple, Yellow
Specific Gravity: 2.65
Refractive Index: 1.54 – 1.55
We mentioned above that Ametrine’s color is a mixture of yellow Citrine and purple Amethyst blends. Let’s get a little more specific, though.
Ametrine gemstones have a wide-ranged color spectrum. Stones can be 75% yellow and 25% purple or 10% yellow and 90% purple. The most valuable and desirable Ametrine gemstones have a 50-50 color balance.
Ametrine is often found in large and clean pieces just like most other gems from the quartz family. As a result, the stone’s price doesn’t increase with size. Ametrine’s value primarily depends on the depth, vividness and separation of its colors.
The artistry involved in cutting or carving an Ametrine gemstone also adds to its value. When cut from the same material, native cut (hand-cut) stones are far more expensive than commercial grade stones, as you would expect.
There are many meanings that we can associate with the Ametrine gemstones. These include inner strength and harmony; the stone’s ability to help us deal with emotional instability and stress; as well as its Yin and Yang energies, bringing balance to the mind of those who wear this gemstone. It should also go without mentioning that Ametrine inspires creativity and vitality.
When it comes to the uses of the ametrine gemstone, if you want to get the benefits of two stones in one, then the Ametrine gemstone is for you. As we mentioned, the stone is a mixture of Citrine and Amethyst!
Aside from the economies of scale that this stone offers, there are other reasons you may want to use an Ametrine. Namely, this stone does a better job of providing the wearer with physical and psychic benefits than any other.
One half of this stone’s benefits derive from Citrine, which helps its wearers manifest desires. The issue with just wearing a Citrine though is that you have to know what you desire in order to manifest it, and that’s where Amethyst comes in - the second half of Ametrine! The Amethyst gemstone inspires our imagination and expands our minds.
Therefore, an Ametrine gemstone can help you both think up wonderful ideas, and also manifest them into reality. How’s that for one stone?!
The unique blend of colors that the Ametrine gemstone possesses makes it a great stone for jewelry, which happens to be the primary use for this gem. Some of the most common pieces of jewelry that Ametrine can be found in include beads, earrings, necklaces, pendants, and rings. Alongside jewelry, Ametrine gemstones are commonly included in home decor, such as crystal balls.
It is also fashioned into crystal balls as well as other home decors like crystal trees. Not only that, but this stone is also often cut into cabochons and used for metaphysical healing and purposes.

There are also non-commercial deposits of Ametrine all around the globe, including in Canada, Mozambique, India, and the United States.
The ametrine gemstone already benefits from the energies of two stones, being amethyst and citrine. For that reason, we don’t recommend that you combine ametrine with any other stone. The reason is that some crystals might work well with amethyst while at the same time clashing against amethyst.
If you would really like to combine your amethyst gemstone with another crystal though, here are some safe bets:
Ametrine + Iolite
Ametrine + Clear Quartz
Ametrine + Black Tourmaline
In terms of physically cleaning your ametrine gemstone, this is a fairly simple process. As this is a fairly tough gemstone you can clean this gemstone using warm, soapy water and a brush. You may even resort to ultrasonic cleaning as well. If you possess a synthetic ametrine though, we recommend you steer clear of steam cleaning as lab-created ametrines are very resistant to high levels of heat.
As far as energy cleansing is concerned, the ametrine gemstone does not hold or accumulate negative energies and thus there is little to no need to worry about energy cleansing this stone.
If you’re looking to recharge your ametrine though, you can do this by placing it in a bowl of natural seawater, or alternatively, if you don’t have access to the sea, then placing sea salt in a bowl of water will also do.
You may also charge your ametrine gemstone using lunar energies. Leave your stone out under a full moon for the best results.
With the combined powers of the spirituality of amethyst together with the positivity of citrine, the ametrine gemstone is a powerful crystal to add to your collection. In fact, if you wish to do so, then you may shop for ametrine gemstones right on our website!
