Ametrine, also known as trystine or bolivianite, is amethyst and citrine combined, which are both a variety of quartz. This specific crystal is a macrocrystalline variety of quartz, which is very hard to find in nature. Amethyst is known for its vibrant purple due to the manganese inclusions, whereas citrine is a golden yellow due to the iron inclusions. Combine the two and you have a unique stone that’s able to display a purple and yellow-orange hue. And, when cut perpendicular, the crystal almost portrays a pinwheel look, displaying sectors of both purple and yellow.
Ametrine is relatively new, at least in comparison to other crystals, as it was introduced to the retail markets in the late 1970s, where it came from Bolivia, near the Brazilian border. However, well before this, Spanish conquistadors were said to discover an ametrine mine in the early 1600s, but the mine was lost in history. This very mine was named after a Princess named Anahi. It was only later it was re-discovered and the name still sticks to this day. The Anahi mine produces both amethyst, citrine as well as ametrine.

Ametrine spiritual meaning
Spiritualists say ametrine is able to take its positive energy and dispel any negative energy surrounding your aura. In doing so, this should leave you open to all of the positivity the world has to offer you. This positivity can benefit you in a variety of ways spiritually, which can include motivating you to practice your spiritual values daily. They say that ametrine may promote your psychic opening, giving you the opportunity to work with spirit guides and meditation. This crystal can balance both your inward and outward flow, helping connect you with ideas and information. It’s said to be a great stone to help you find clarity, direction and purpose.
Ametrine is said to be associated with both the solar plexus and crown chakras. The solar plexus is your third chakra, which spins slightly around your abdomen and is associated with your self esteem and transformation energy. Your crown chakra is the seventh chakra, said to inspire you, all while connecting you to the divine. It gives you a sense of awareness that you are a soul in a human body.
Ametrine crystal bracelet benefits
They say if you wear ametrine, it may be able to get rid of the unwanted energies in your life. Spiritualists may believe that if you hold/wear the stone, it may be able to keep you energized, relieve stress and even potentially promote healing. It is said that the stone draws power from the moon and sun, then transferring that energy into your body, giving you that energetic feeling. It may also be able to give you that strong connection to the spirit world, which is said to help you find purpose in your life.
Many believe that you can also hold the stone and then say what you no longer want in your life and how you want to replace it. To make this potentially work, you will want to hold the ametrine, name what is bad and then hold it up to the natural light while saying what you want to replace. This little exercise may work with persistence and patience.
Is ametrine valuable?
While ametrine is rare, it doesn’t mean it’s going to be expensive. In fact, ametrine is priced similarly to that of amethyst or citrine, making it a very affordable stone.
Yes, ametrine only comes from one mine in the world, but even so, it doesn’t affect the price all that much, mainly because people don’t know about it. If you were to find it on the market, you can get tumbled stones for less than $15 on average, whereas jewelry can average about $10~ per carat.
How to charge ametrine
Like most crystals, ametrine can be charged in a variety of ways.
One of the best ways is to charge it via the power of the sun. All you need to do is leave it out in the sun for no more than a few hours. The moonlight is a great option as well, especially a full moon. Keep your ametrine out overnight in this case and take it in right when the sun starts to rise.
Try to charge your crystals at least once a week, including ametrine.
