Amethyst is a very popular gemstone that has a beautiful appearance and is believed to have magical energy. However, amethyst jewelry may become tarnished over time and lose its original beauty. So, how should we clean and maintain amethyst jewelry? Here are some tips and tricks.

1. Cleaning method

First, we must prepare mild, soapy water and a soft brush. Soak the amethyst jewelry in soapy water for a few minutes, then gently brush the stone’s surface with a soft brush. Be careful not to use too much force when brushing not to scratch the gem. When finished, rinse off with water.

Amethyst can be used in sea salt, that is, coarse salt, with clean and pollution-free water to soak for a night and then washed with pure water the next day. This method is for the crystal with metal or rope to use less because salt will erode metal or rope! General mineral water or distilled water can be used for clean water.


  1. When cleaning amethyst jewelry, avoid using detergent containing acid and alkali ingredients to prevent damage to the gem.
  2. In addition, do not use a stiff brush or other complex objects to clean, so as not to scratch the gemstone’s surface.
  3. In addition, avoid prolonged exposure to the sun so as not to fade the stone’s color.

In addition, when doing sports, taking a bath, or swimming, you should remove the amethyst bracelet and avoid contact with sweat because these acidic substances will erode the amethyst bracelet.

2. Maintenance method

To maintain the luster and beauty of amethyst jewelry, we can gently wipe the gem’s surface with a soft cloth to remove dust and dirt on the surface. In addition, the stone can be placed in the box to avoid friction with other complex objects and prevent the stone from being contaminated by the outside world.

Amethyst is wear-resistant, with hardness more than general household glass (hardness of 7). Generally, everyday wear is not too big a problem, but be careful not to knock or fall so as not to damage.

Amethyst is afraid of alkaline substances, so it must not be worn when bathing because soap is alkaline and easy to corrode amethyst. Wear closely, accept sweat, cosmetics, slight acid, weak alkali intrusion, easy to make the amethyst surface tarnish, should be regularly washed with water, wipe clean.

Amethyst should not be close to high temperature or fire to prevent fading or cracking. If the economic strength allows, you can buy a crystal straw or crystal hole and separate the amethyst inside, which not only has the effect of purification but also is the best way to maintain the crystal, but the premise is that the economy allows it.

Natural amethyst is maintained the same way as any crystal. Don’t bump violently, and don’t fall. Do not be exposed to the sun for a long time because it will destroy the color center of the crystal, make it fade, and cause the crystal to lose water so that it loses its sense of moistening and hydration.

If you believe that the crystal has energy, it is recommended to degauss it for a month or two. If you don’t believe me, you can ignore it.

The bracelet bead line is elastic. Wear it for a long time or often soak it in water, and it will be burred. It will fade, it will be oxidized, and break. In these cases, it is recommended to change the new elastic line. (Usually, it takes 1-2 years or so to change the line), Finally, amethyst does not contact chemicals.

Amethyst jewelry is a precious gemstone; the correct cleaning and maintenance method can extend its service life and maintain its beauty. The above methods and techniques can help you so your amethyst bracelet will shine forever.
