Ametrine is a variety of quartz that contains both amethyst and citrine sectors in the same crystal. Ametrine is most typically faceted in a rectangular shape with a 50/50 pairing of amethyst and citrine
The only significant source of natural ametrine is the Anahí mine, in eastern Bolivia. The mine first became famous in the seventeenth century when a Spanish conquistador received it as a dowry on marrying a princess named Anahi from the Ayoreos tribe. Ametrine was introduced to Europe through the conquistador's gifts to the Spanish queen.
