All your Questions about Amethyst Answered

The biggest producer of Amethyst is Brazil, although it originates from all around the world including the U.S to Korea, Russia, India, Austria, and Australia.

Up until 18th century, the lavender quartz was believed to be one of the most valuable gemstones. The price value of amethyst dropped with the discovery of Minas Gerais mines.

However, spiritual and metaphysical properties of amethyst have only bettered over time.

Without much ado, let’s start dissecting all your questions about amethyst.

1.    What gives amethyst its purple color?

When an amethyst is irradiated, it gains the purple color we all love. Besides illumination, the purple tone of this quartz comes from iron impurities inside the lattice. It is a quartz that radiates naturally when growing up.

The most expensive amethyst in the world is the transparent deep-purple type.

2.    How do you bond with an Amethyst?

Just like any other crystal, bonding with an amethyst requires willpower and emotional investment, to start with. As the rule of thumb, purple quartz is a grounding crystal, hence long-term contact is not recommended. Fix a time and talk to your amethyst while sitting upright and placing the rock on your forehead. You will bond with amethyst in 7 days!

3.    What bad effects does Amethyst stone have?

Like I said above, sometimes amethyst can over-ground you. Don’t be alarmed, it is nothing scary unless you rectify it. When your crown chakra keeps grounding you, it becomes difficult to get up from the ritual posture or think about anything else. All you need to do is any one of the gemstone Lapis Lazuli, Apatite or Shattuckite to unground yourself.

Besides making you too grounded, amethyst can be toxic to your mind if you’re trying to curse.

4.    Is there a way to ground using Amethyst?

Amethyst Quartz Crystal Wand; $29.95 USD

Amethyst is the best stone to ground yourself from the negativity and burdening evil that has accumulated over you. When you’re feeling depressed or sad, purple quartz can get rid of the nagging mind chatter from your bran. That being said, there’s no use of amethyst for physical grounding as it is an exclusively spiritual grounding stone.

How to ground using an amethyst?

  1. Clean your amethyst with a clear quartz by circling the stone thrice.
  2. Stand straight.
  3. Keep the amethyst on your crown chakra or forehead.
  4. Close your eyes.
  5. Imagine the purple rays of amethyst entering your crown, moving towards third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral and final root chakra and then splitting into two parts into your feet.
  6. Hold the imagination at your feet and release it with all your energy into the ground.
  7. Do it for 7 minutes!

5.    Can “wearing” the stone be as simple as placing it in your pocket?

Amethyst  Beads   5 10mm   AtPerrys Healing Crystals   1
Amethyst Beads; $23 USD

Yes, wearing an amethyst can be easy and stress-free if your manifestation is simple too. When you’re an office goer like Kerri who wants to wear the gemstone to work, it is best to activate your amethyst at home before you go to the office by placing it on your forehead. Imagine your day going good and once the stone is activated, slide it into your pocket.

The key difference between wearing your purple quartz and placing it in the pocket is skin contact. While direct contact enhances chakra energy automatically, activated crystals do the same. So, if it is in your pocket or hidden in your wallet in the pocket, an activated crystal will do exactly as you manifested it for.

6.    What chakra is Amethyst?

Crown chakra, located on top of your forehead is the chakra power of amethyst. Apart from the crown, amethyst can also empower the third eye located in between your brows. Crown connects to ether (etheric realm) and the third eye opens your spiritual eye to the future. When you spot a purple quartz in red, it can awaken the sacral chakra too!

7.    Is there a way to possess the powers of an Amethyst?

10. What is Rose De France Amethyst? Does it have any special properties, other than those Amethyst possesses anyway?

An exclusive Brazilian variety, Amethyst called as Rose De France has 7.0 on the MOHS scale. It is revered for its softest purple color, originating from Minas Gerais, the Brazilian mines.

Renowned for its protective properties, the key difference is the color. Fact is, the color in purple quartz always varies throughout the stone. On the contrary, for the Rose de France stone is a lilac shade of amethyst in pastel shades. It looks and dazzles totally different from any common variety of amethyst.  It is considered auspicious when gifted to couples celebrating their 33rd wedding anniversary.   

The clarity of rose de France is not ideal as there are inclusions of lavender, lilac, blue and red, unlike black in this gemstone. It has a hexagon structure, making it highly prized than common amethysts in the market. Metaphysically, Rose De France empowers your metabolism in addition to the intuitive vibes.

11. Can Amethyst be worn with ruby?

Amethyst, Peridot, Topaz, Ruby Pendant   925 Sterling Silver   AtPerrys Healing Crystals   1


It is best not to wear purple quartz with ruby because both have opposing qualities and traits. In fact, amethyst is ruled by Jupiter and shifts to Saturn while ruby is ruled by Jupiter. Put simply, amethyst calms you while ruby enthralls and fires your passion.

If you wear a clear quartz along with amethyst and ruby, the energies of both the stones can be balanced without negativity and harm.

12. Are amethysts for empaths good?

While most gemstones help to clarify your feelings, amethyst protects an empath from mistakes and errors as well as evil eye.

When you’re an empath, it is common to find yourself in the middle of controversies, blames and problems.

That’s why, you must always wear an amethyst ring to ensure your private space remains intact and your mind remains peaceful.

Selfless Pisces born people will find empowerment, humble Virgo will find wisdom, unstable Aquarius will find peace and pessimistic Capricorn will find good fortune and faith in themselves.

14. Can amethyst be in the sun?

Natural Uruguay Amethyst Crystal Stone   matans
Natural Uruguay Amethyst Crystal Stone; $32 USD

Please don’t leave your amethyst in the sun for more than 2 hours. This is because, purple quartz or amethyst cannot be in the sun for longer hours as it tends to react with the UV rays. The result? A faded amethyst that just can’t be restored to its original magnificent color.

So, if you want to charge your purple crystal, get a timer along with it or just plainly avoid it. Instead, charge it with the moon energy!

“Amethyst changes color to yellow when heated at 4700C or above while it turns brown at 5500C”.

What to do? Read up by clicking this blog post on faded crystals and what to do about it!

15. Is there something called a green amethyst?

The pale quartz in green shade is referred to as green amethyst. It is often a variety of irradiated amethyst. Green quartz is actually called prasiolite, the heated amethyst.

The name prasiolite is derived from ‘leek-green’. Above 5000C heating leads amethyst to green color of amethyst.  The method to produce such a stone is the hydrothermal process. Finally, green amethyst is a misnomer.

16. Can I wear my amethyst every day?

Amethyst Ring White Gold Filled   AtPerrys Healing Crystals   1
Amethyst Ring White Gold Filled; $47 USD

No, it’s not good to wear amethyst every day because-

  • It will make you too grounded and immovable.
  • You will be connected to angelic realm all the time, lose connection to reality.
  • Amethyst can make you lazy without any purpose.

There are many more reasons why purple gemstone quartz is not suitable for daily wear. Instead, wear your amethyst on Saturdays as it will prevent the ill effects of Saturday. The best time of the day is evening.

However, if it's your birthstone, then go ahead and wear it every day!

17. Is Amethyst the best substitute gemstone for blue sapphire?

As blue sapphire and amethyst both pleases the powers of the planet Saturn, they can be worn interchangeably. However, keep in mind that both the stone activates two different chakras.

If you want a throat chakra stone, add turquoise to the mix.

18. Can Amethyst get wet?

Unlike stones such as Malachite, amethyst does not get wet because it is quartz.

With a hardness above 7, amethyst is a quartz that does not dissolve in water. The same is why, it does not get wet.

In fact, the best way to clean purple quartz is by rubbing with gentle microfiber cloth.

Always ensure you go to a doctor rather than substituting with gemstones if you’re new to the world of crystal healing.

20. Can Amethyst emit or increase far-infrared light?

Irregular Wire Wrapped Raw Stone Amethyst & Citrine Crystal Necklace - AtPerry's Healing Crystals™

What is the scientific explanation of the powers of amethyst? When I started searching I found the reason why my purple stone always remained warm. And, when I kept two purple quartzes with each other, the heat energy was astounding.

So, after checking and reading up for hours, I contacted my scientist friends to make this answer.   The truth is amethyst does not make the IR (Infra Red) light, but it can reflect the heat energy from other things such as sun or even your stove.

Amethyst is often called the superconductor because it can emit FIR and MIR. Forget the mumbo-jumbo, the truth is even when you cover a purple gemstone with your own body, there is a transfer of heat energy that happens. In turn, you will end up feeling stable, grounded and peaceful.
