Amethyst Crystal Healing Properties

There is a plethora of information available regarding the amethyst crystal healing properties that can be a little overwhelming. And that is where I have attempted to research and summarised them down to what I believe as the most commonly agreed properties across various sources.

The study that I have undertaken took me a few weeks to analyse across many gemstones, and you can find them in the article, Gemstones and their Meanings. If you would like to save some time to learn about the summarised meanings of the gemstones I have researched, you can head on to that article.

But of course, I would also recommend that you do your own due diligence (DYODD) if you have time.

I have also blogged about how we may apply numerology perspective into the context of gemstones to tap on their positive energies and help tune our own energies. And you can read this in my article, Numerology of Gemstones.

In this article, we will zoom into amethyst to focus on its energy properties. We will also learn how we may identify from our Numerology chart whether we should acquire amethyst to help augment our positive energies or suppress our negative energies.

Energy Properties of Amethyst

The sub-sections below describes the common vibrational energy properties and the character root number (a.k.a. life path number or vibration number) derivation for amethyst.

Common Vibrational Energy Properties of Amethyst

  • Promotes stability, peace, calmness, and balance
  • Provides clarity of mind to help you make wiser decisions
  • Protection against negative thoughts
  • Increase charm and attractiveness

Character Root Number Derivation of Amethyst

There are 2 calculation methods to derive the character root number of a gemstone. These are by chemical formula and by name.

By Chemical Formula

The chemical formula of amethyst is SiO2.


From the chemical formula, the character root number works out to be 1+9+6+6 = 4. Hence, amethyst is aligned to character root number 4 based on its chemical formula.

The positive and negative characteristics of Character Root Number 4 personality are summarised as follows:


  • Intelligent
  • Great planning skills
  • Values beauty


  • Impatient
  • Insecure
  • Very much concerned with his/her reputation

By Name

The translation of the word amethyst into its respective numbers is as shown below.


From the name, the character root number works out to be 1+4+5+2+8+7+1+2 = 30 = 3+0 = 3

Hence, amethyst is associated with Character Root Number 3 based on the name. The positive and negative characteristics of a Character Root Number 3 personality are as follows:


  • Action Taker
  • Optimistic
  • Energetic
  • Expressive
  • Talented


  • Temperamental
  • Impatient
  • Rash

You might be wondering what should the character root number be for amethyst, given that it can be a number 3 or 4.

What I find is that the word amethyst is an English word. While in English, the character root number of amethyst is a number 3, it will become a number 7 in Portuguese, ametista.

Hence, in my opinion, using the chemical formula has a universal approach to deriving the character root number of gemstones. It does away with the language differences.

However, we should also note that amethyst is one of the most popular semi-precious gemstones or crystals. The healing properties can be wide-ranging.

By the common vibrational energy properties that I have compiled through reading various sources on the meaning of amethyst, I find that amethyst can also be beneficial for other character root numbers such as number 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. It is more related to the application of amethyst, as in, who should have amethyst to benefit from its vibrational energies.

And from historical accounts of amethyst, we learned that it is seen as a sobriety stone, protecting the owner from drunkenness or prevent intoxication. This characteristic sits well with the nature of a Character Root Number 4, the Mastermind.

How do we know if we need Amethyst?

Hence, if your character root number is number 4 as calculated from your numerology chart, you should not need an amethyst because you are generally sober and thinks a lot.

Nevertheless, there is no harm surrounding yourself with a piece or two of amethyst if you want to enhance your natural analytical abilities

If you are not a character root number 4 personality, then the second thing you should look out for is whether you have a number 4 anywhere else in your numerology chart.

If you can see number 4 in other parts of your chart, ask yourself whether you find yourself to be a person who is usually well-organised, good with planning and analysis.

And if you find these characteristics lacking in you, then amethyst is something you can consider.

Lastly, if you do not have a number 4 anywhere in your chart, or find that you are not as well-organised as you hope to be, owning an amethyst or two should help enhance your vibrational energies in this area.

Amethyst Accessories

You can purchase amethyst as a wearable or as an ornament. As long as you have this gemstone in your surroundings, you may benefit from its vibrational energies.

The world can be somewhat unfair to the guys when it comes to gemstones. Gemstone accessories are usually for the ladies. Nevertheless, there is always something for everyone.

I have curated a list of amethyst accessories below, where I find them rather unique. Do check them out to see if any of these suits you.

  1. This is a fascinating post about amethyst and the healing properties and it is great to learn more about the qualities of the stone. Stones have been used for many years for their healing properties and I love the vibrational properties of amethyst. 

    I had no idea that stones have a number derivation that can be worked out with the chemical formula or through the name. it sounds as if we should surround us with amethyst for more positive thoughts. 

    • Hi LineCowley, thanks for dropping by. I would recommend you have a look at your numerology chart to see if amethyst is needed. 🙂

  2. It’s fascinating to learn about the various qualities of stones and the effects they have on people. Stones were always worn by both sexes years ago due to their healing properties. They sure do look beautiful on any woman however I have seen plenty of men wearing stones today due to their belief in the healing properties. Thanks for the article it was very interesting and those Amethyst Balance Earrings look beautiful.

    • Hi Rick, thank you for dropping by and glad that you find this article interesting. It is good to know that more men today are wearing gemstones nowadays.

  3. Thank you for great post. I had no idea that there is so many connections between numerology and crystals. Doing quick calculations it seems that Amethyst is my stone and I would definitely use its healing potential. You recommended some very beautiful items, especially sagrada earrings looks impressive (and I would like to have it even if Amethyst wouldn’t be my stone).

  4. This is a very intriguing piece! Amethyst crystal healing properties are well articulated and the numerology perspective to determine when you need Amethyst is well explained. I learned new insights as well on how we may identify from our Numerology chart whether we should acquire some of the gems out there.

    Thank you for this information. I will definitely share your article with my friends!

    All the best,


  5. This was very interesting, I had never heard of numerology. I calculated my numbers and my root number is a 2, so I guess that means I am a communicator. So if I understand it correctly numerology is a kind of horoscope, based on your date of birth, is this correct? If it is correct does this in any way correlate to the zodiac, for instance, I am a 2 in my root number, and in the zodiac, I am a Leo, so do they agree with each other, or is the zodiac something completely different?

    • Hi AL, thanks for dropping by. Numerology considers the date of birth which includes the birth year but zodiac only looks at the day and month. The study of zodiac/astrology is different from numerology. While I do not delve into the astrology domain, I do see attempts to link numerology and zodiac signs together. In one source that I have seen, Leo is linked to number 1, while number 2 is linked to Cancer. Hope this helps.
