You will also find on the market ametrine gemstones. It is a mixture of amethyst and half citrine and is created by turning the stone into citrine and then irradiating a portion of the gemstone back to an amethyst shade of color. This is often confusing for buyers as they are unsure if this is still a true gemstone or a manmade stone. The answer is yes, it is still a true gemstone however and it is no longer a natural gemstone, as it has been altered from its natural state.
Unfortunately there are unscrupulous suppliers out there who will pass off citrine as the more expensive orange-yellow topaz. Many potential citrine fanciers view citrine as a fake topaz and not a legitimate gemstone which confuses the issue even more.
