Both the name and the look of ametrine immediately gets our attention. It’s unlike any other gemstone with it’s purple ombre that goes into yellow. You’re right to think of both amethyst and citrine, as that’s what’s it’s made from. Oxidation creates the cool bands of color. Think of it as bicolored quartz. And hey, it even has a cool legend to accompany it.
The legend surrounding ametrine says that it was first noticed when a conquistador married a princess from the Ayoreos tribe and he was gifted a mine in Bolivia. He sent some ametrine to the Spanish Queen, and she must have loved it. We certainly do.
In fact, if you’re an indecisive type, having two amazing gemstones merge together makes the choice that much less difficult. Purple and yellow not only look fantastic together (they’re opposites on the color wheel) but you get major bonus points if those are two gemstones important to you or your family/sisters/etc and then you can wear both in the same stone formation.
