Metaphysical & Spiritual Properties
Amethyst stimulating the upper chakra, protecting your field, purifying your energies – Citrine enhancing mental clarity, creativity and will. These two energies bring one’s spirituality into alignment with the mind, opening you up to a profound flow of creativity, new ideas and insights. It is an excellent stone for those who are indecisive and for those who procrastinate by assisting one in making the changes necessary to align one’s life with the Divine. Ametrine is helpful when one is feeling mentally sluggish, foggy, or unable to concentrate.
As Ametrine connects to the spiritual realms, it will help one to take clear action based upon higher guidance aligned with Divine will. This will support one to develop a strong sense of personal power and potential.
History & Folklore
According to legend, a mine in Bolivia was located at the border of two different territories – one controlled by the Inca empire and the other by the Spanish conquistadors. The Incan ruler who controlled the mine was gifted a piece of ametrine as a sign of respect and admiration by the Spanish conquistador. The ruler, amazed by the stone’s unique properties, declared it to be a sacred gem and gifted it to the high priests to use in their spiritual rituals. The unique blend of energy, combined with the spectacular color, enhances all its spiritual and healing properties.
