About Stone: Ametrine, also known as trystine, is a naturally occurring variety of quartz. It is a mixture of amethyst and citrine with zones of purple and yellow or orange. The colour of the zones visible within ametrine are due to differing oxidation states of iron within the crystal. The different oxidation states occur due to there being a temperature gradient across the crystal during its formation.
Zodiac Association: Libra
Metaphysical Properties: Ametrine crystals provide a connection between the higher energies of the crown, and the energy of the physical from the solar plexus chakra. This connection will aid you to bring your thinking from the physical day to day realm into the spiritual realm.
