Item Description

A classic and a natural-color gem oddity! Ametrine is a variety of quartz that displays bands of both amethyst purple and citrine yellow. This trillion cut gem comes from the famous Anahi Mine in Bolivia and unlike most examples, the color display here is more blended rather than sharply defined. It gives the 17.72 carat ametrine an “ethereal” look that would make a unique piece of jewelry or an enticing gem for a “rough and cut” display. This stone hails from the personal stash of a noted jeweler who has personally visited and assisted in the mining and marketing of this exotic material. (N)
