LORE & HISTORY
“Legend has it that a Spanish conquistador discovered the mine’s location in the 1600s and introduced the gem to Europeans when he presented several specimens to his queen.
The mine had been given to him as a dowry when he married a native princess named Anahi. After that, the mine was lost for more than three centuries.
Rediscovered in the 1960s, the mine’s ametrine began appearing on the market again during the 1970s. Today the mine, named Anahi for the legendary princess, also produces natural amethyst and citrine.”

Ametrine is a transparent crystal that is composed of silicon dioxide and is a member of the Quartz group of minerals. It appeared on the market in the early 1980s and was initially met with doubts regarding its status as naturally occurring. To this day, the only verified source of raw, natural Ametrine is an area in Bolivia near the Brazilian border. Due to the location of its sole known mine, Ametrine is also commonly referred to as Bolivianite.
Raw Ametrine crystals are composed of alternating sectors of purple and yellow to orange color. Slabs cut perpendicular to the c-axis of the crystal look a bit like a pinwheel with three sectors of purple and three sectors of yellow.
Ametrine is in a sense much more Amethyst than it is Citrine. This stone’s abrupt color transition reflects slight fluctuations in temperature and pressure during its formation. Depending on these factors, iron impurities can lead to the formation of Amethyst or Citrine zones within a quartz stone.
