Gem Powers: Ametrine is said to be the complete balance of the properties of amethyst and citrine.
As a stone of both balance and connection, ametrine is believed to relieve tension, bring serenity and stimulate creativity, as well as balance mental stability and self-confidence. Ametrine is considered a double boost to remove toxins from the body, as both amethyst and citrine are detoxifiers.
If you’re looking to restore balance and focus, look for an ametrine with more purple. If you’re looking to harness your creativity, look for an ametrine with more yellow.
Women love wearing Ametrine since many believe that simply holding the stone, saying the name of the thing you no longer want in your life, and then holding it in the sun and saying what you do want will help you lead a more fulfilling life.
