Also known as bolivianite, ametrine is a naturally occur- ring form of quartz, in this case a mixture of amethyst and citrine. "Almost all commercially available ametrine is mined in Bolivia," organizer Josie Litch- field said. "Legend has it that ametrine was first introduced to Europe by a conquistador as a gift to the Spanish Queen, af- ter he received the Anahi mine in Bolivia as a dowry."
