Ametrine is the ‘step up’ crystal of Amethyst, a combination of both Amethyst and Citrine. Ametrine is a member of the larger Quartz (Silicon Dioxide) family. This family includes minerals such as Citrine, Smokey Quartz and Aventurine. Ametrine receives it’s vivid, violet colour from the inclusion of Iron within the crystalline structure. The Golden Yellow whisks of Citrine within come from the crystal going through cycles of hot and cool temperatures while forming. Ametrine can be found in most countries, but the most notable sources are Brazil and Bolivia. Specimens of Ametrine from Bolivia also receive the name of ‘Bolivianite’.
Ametrine receives its name by combining the names of the two crystals within, Amethyst and Citrine. Amethyst receives its name from the Greek word ‘amethustos’, which roughly translates to ‘non-drunk’. The name ‘Citrine’ comes from the citron fruit. The energies from both Amethyst and Citrine are evident within Ametrine, while still introducing some additional energies. As such, I’m proving energies of both Amethyst, and Citrine below, while including Ametrines additional energies.
For Amethyst – Crystal Healers around the world will agree that Amethyst is the number one crystal to use when someone is needing to quit an addiction, whether that they are heavy drinkers or that they need to quite substance and tobacco use. Any addictive habit can be ‘neutralized’ by the healing powers of Amethyst. Something else that Amethyst is famous for is it’s ability to help those with Insomnia. Whenever I hear a friend or a client complaining about their inability to get a good nights rest I usually find myself throwing a piece of Amethyst at them, not literally so don’t worry about coming into the shop! Just take a piece of Amethyst and place it in your pillow case or on your bedside table. I usually recommend using tumblestones in your pillow but do feel free to use points, just whatever you feel most comfortable with.
For Citrine – Citrine is the ultimate manifestation crystal. Citrine embodies the ‘7 Laws of Attraction’, these laws help you to manifest anything you may need. Keeping Citrine with you all day is paramount. If seeking that new job, or looking for that raise, keep it near. If wishing to beat your record on that game, keep it near. Citrine can help make the impossible, possible.
For Ametrine – Ametrine is a stone of both masculine and feminine energies. Ametrine works as a ying-yang stone, helping to bring balance within the body and the physical world. Its an ideal stone to use during a disagreement, allowing both sides to listen and understand each other.
