This multi-colored gemstone has more than a double color, it seems also to have a double history. Most geological references state that Ametrine was first brought to the gem market in the 1970s. Except there is another story about this special crystal that dates back to the conquistadors stating a quite different story.
During the 17th century, a conquistador named Don Felipe married Anakha, the princess to the Aureiros tribe of Bolivia. The mine, named Anahi for the princess, was given to him as part of her dowry. When it came time for Felipe to return to Spain, his princess bride wished to return with him. As the couple attempted to depart, angry tribesmen turned on them and murdered the young princess. The duo colored gem is said to represent the princess’ two loyalties: to her husband and to her tribe.
