Ametrine or Bolivianite is an unusual, and rare form of quartz. This is a combination of Amethyst which is mauve, and Citrine which is yellow. Ametrine comes from one location, which is the Anahi mine, in the Rincon del Tigre area of Bolivia. This remote mine is the worlds only natural source of this rare crystal. When it was formed, fluctuating temperatures caused different states of oxidisation in the tiny iron particles within the crystal.
