Amethyst is a variety of quartz which gets its colour from irradiated iron and other minerals. It typically grows in clusters of 6-sided prisms of hues from light violet to deep purple. Citrine is also a variety of quartz, coloured in a range between pale yellow to brown due to ferric impurities. These two stones are often found together in the same stone, which is then called ametrine.

The colour change in ametrine is due to differing oxidation states of the iron in the crystal. this happens due to there being. temperature difference when the crystal originally formed. 

According to The Crystal Bible Volume 1 by Judy Hall, ametrine is quick-acting, clears stress and tension and helps bring focus to meditation. It helps bring acceptance, stimulate creativity, and help you grasp your destiny.
