This multi-colored gemstone has a double color. It has the energies of Citrine and Amethyst.. Most geological references state that Ametrine was first brought to the gem market in the 1970s.
The different colors visible within ametrine are due to differing oxidation states of iron within the crystal. The different oxidation states occur due to a temperature gradient across the crystal during it's formation.
In order for the Iron to produce both colors within the same crystal, very specific conditions have to be present. Not only does one area of the crystal have to be exposed to more heat, while another section is slightly cooler; this dual temperature condition has to remain stable during the entire growth cycle of the crystal. Creating the perfect balance to form ametrines. Otherwise, these magical gems would have become Amethysts or Citrines.
If you perform readings or work in the astral plane, wish to communicate with spirits, energies and guides in alternative worlds then Ametrine is extremely effective at opening these psychic doorways. Ametrine provides protection as you journey through these unfamiliar landscapes, and light your way back to familiar ground.
For those engaged in what you believe to be mundane activities, ametrine teaches you to balance your physical activities with your spiritual hunger. Purple and gold/yellow are opposite of each other on the color wheel, and yet are very complimentary to each other.
