Ametrine, also known as trystine or by its trade name as bolivianite, is a naturally occurring variety of quartz. It is a mixture of amethyst and citrine with zones of purple and yellow or orange. Ametrine was not readily available on the market until the 1970s when it was discovered--or re-discovered--in Bolivia. The legends say a Spanish conquistador discovered the ametrine mine in the 1600s when he received the land after marrying a native princess named Anahi. He sent several specimens to Queen Isabella of Spain ... and then the mine was lost for centuries. When it was rediscovered, it was named after the legendary princess, whose land it once was.
As a stone of both balance and connection, ametrine is believed to relieve tension, bring serenity and stimulate creativity, as well as balance mental stability and self-confidence. Ametrine is considered a double boost to remove toxins from the body, as both amethyst and citrine are detoxifiers.
