What are some of the properties of ametrine gemstones
Quartz which occurs in bands of yellow and purple has been given the name of ametrine (amethyst + citrine). These stones are typically eye clean and transparent and once they are cut and polished they posess a vitrious luster. The Faceted Gems are often found in unique Shapes like Rhomb Facet, uniquely arranged Step Cuts, and Cushion Cuts like the Cushion Checkerboard all of which are shown above. With Ametrine the quality of the cut and the arrangements of the colors are truly important factors for the stones final aesthetic.
Initially cutters favored windowed emerald shapes with a 50/50 split of colors, and much of the rough is still cut this way. More recently, however, some cutters have begun to cut a variety of shapes, many of which create internal reflections that blend the yellow and purple into attractive shades of rosy gold and mauve, or create mosaic-like flashes of both yellow and purple.
