Ametrine

Occasionally, Mother Nature combines the colors of amethyst and citrine into a single, exciting gemstone we call ametrine. The Anahi Mine in Bolivia became famous in the seventeenth century when a Spanish conquistador received it as a dowry when he married a princess from the Ayoreos tribe named Anahi. Ametrine was introduced to Europe through the conquistador's gifts to the Spanish queen.

Ametrine is as affordable as regular amethyst or citrine, and you can have both gemstones for the price of one. Ametrine is especially inexpensive when you consider that it comes from only one place.

Ametrine is a very durable gemstone suited for everyday wear. Your AGTA jeweler can tell you how to best care for your ametrine.
