The ametrine crystal is rare and can only be found in one mine in the world – and it happens to be in Bolivia. It is because of this that not many people actually know that the stone exists. The Anahi Mine was first discovered in the 17th century but was somehow forgotten and lost in history, only to be rediscovered in the 1970s.

Also known as Bolivianite, Ametrine is a naturally occurring combination of amethyst and citrine. Both minerals have the same chemical composition, but when exposed to high heat purple Amethyst transforms into golden citrine. In ametrine, that transformation was only partially finished, creating a beautiful golden-to-violet range of colour, uniquely combined in each individual piece. The combination makes it an interesting crystal metaphysically, connecting the solar plexus with the higher chakras, connecting physical and mental planes. In fact, it’s a wonderful crystal for communication, especially when connecting with the spiritual realm. 

The ametrine crystal is said to be symbolic of inner strength and harmony. It is also able to amplify the energy of the person wearing the stone.  It is also said to be helpful for releasing negative emotional programming.

Ametrine is used mystically to aid in meditation, boost psychic abilities, relieve tension, disperse negativity, and help to eliminate prejudice.
