Stone Age: Ametrine

WHAT’S IT GOOD FOR?

The fusion of amethyst and citrine, Ametrine houses all the properties of these two quartz stones, while creating an additional unique vibration. This blend ignites the spiritual properties of both these stones, creating a more powerful piece of "amethyst" and "citrine" than other unblended varieties you may have. It unites masculinity and femininity, offering a deep-rooted sense of balance mentally and emotionally. It draws on the inspirational properties of amethyst with the focus of citrine, offering a chance to come up with your best possible ideas and creations. This is a great stone for those who are healers or who work in professions focused on people or creativity because of its healing, motivational, protective, positive and inspirational fusion. It ramps up creativity, offering many lightning bolt moments through concentrated brainstorming. It enhances emotional wellbeing, and helps bring calm sooner than others stones when used in meditation. It unites the whimsical moodiness of midnight and the moon, with the bright, intoxicating brightness of the sun at high noon.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?

Ametrine is usually quit transparent but will have the purple hue of amethyst mixed with the amber, yellowish-gold glow of citrine. The two usually blend together in a way that looks as if the stone is glowing from within. Some may be darker purple and others may be primarily yellow. Purple and yellow are even opposites on the colour wheel, making them a naturally pleasing pair.

ANYTHING ELSE?

Ametrine is powerful at helping one overcome addictions (amethyst was traditionally given to relieve drunkenness) harnessing the positivity and motivation of citrine. It has been gifted to aid through the struggles of weight loss and helps remove toxins from the body. It is great to wear/carry when you're not feeling well, or even just feeling off without knowing the cause.
