The quality of Amethyst is defined primarily by its color. Yet, before-hand knowledge of other factors can help our customers select the most competent option and buy the best quality Amethyst gemstone online as per their preference.


  • Origin

Amethyst mines have been discovered in Russia, Zambia, India, Brazil, Myanmar, Madagascar, Mexico and Sri Lanka. However, the rich purple colour associated with African Amethyst makes it exceptionally popular. Zambian and Brazilian Amethyst are other famous Amethyst origins because of decently saturated raspberry purple colour.


  • Colour

Amethyst colours may range from light pink-violet to deep purple. The finest quality Amethyst displays vividly saturated purple colour (with or without red tints) and lacks colour zoning completely. The gemstone should neither be too light that it waters down the colour or too dark that it looks black in poor lighting. Also, one should carefully look for brown tints and colour zones as they can lower the quality and overall worth of Amethyst, marginally.


  • Clarity

The Amethyst is graded as Type – 2 gemstone on clarity standards, implying it is naturally cleaner than other precious gemstones. However, whenever present, inclusions in Amethyst exist in and as needles or L- shaped bands. A transparent Amethyst without visible inclusions radiates light and colour better than the translucent stones. Lesser the inclusions, better is the quality of Amethyst. Since it is comfortably available in nature and quite affordable, it is not worthy to compromise on the clarity aspect when buying Amethyst online or from dealers.

Amethyst is abundantly available in nature and is a robust gemstone. It is used in jewellery on a commercial scale. Its prices are influenced more by the colour and less by other factors. Yet origin, cut and clarity carry some degree of influence on its prices. Amethyst price per carat in India usually starts from ₹ 150 ($2) and can go up to ₹ 400 ($7).


  • Origin

Brazilian Amethyst prices range between ₹ 300 to ₹ 400 per carat, and are usually higher than other origins because of superior colour quality. While, African Amethyst can command decent money, that may differ from one stone to another.


  • Colour

The cost of Amethyst is decided almost entirely by its colour. Deep purple Amethyst with slight red and blue hues, draws higher pricing than too dark or too light gemstones. Colour zoning or inconsistent colour distribution can marginally reduce Amethyst cost on a per carat basis.


  • Clarity

Amethyst is largely free of visible inclusions, sometimes when present, they may appear like reddish brown needles or L-shaped bands and can reduce the overall worth of Amethyst.


  • Cut & Shape

Faceted gemstones are more expensive than cabochons because of the stone wastage incurred in the process. A finely cut gemstone not only illuminates colour and light better but can cleverly conceal the inclusions. On similar grounds, if overall quality remains same, round and oval shapes are cheaper than square or other customized shapes.


  • Carat Weight

One may not find an exponential increase in the price of Amethyst vis a vis the carat weight. This is because unlike other precious gemstones, Amethyst is abundantly available in nature. 


  • Treatment

Usually, natural Amethyst is more valuable and astrologically compatible than synthetic or treated ones. Due to sufficient availability, Amethyst is not that vulnerable to profiteering practices like synthetic processing or treatments. However, it may still be subjected to fracture-filling or colour enhancement measures. To ensure value for money, we advise our customers to buy original, certified Amethyst online or from reputed dealers.


  • Gemstone prices in India are calculated both in Carats as well as Ratti. Amethyst price per carat always amounts equal to Amethyst price per ratti.
  • 1 Ratti = 0.91 Carats

Amethyst is recognized as a naturally occurring, purple coloured semi-precious gemstone of Quartz mineral family. Green Amethyst on the other hand is not a different gemstone but the outcome of intense heat treatment done to change Amethyst colour from purple to green. The term ‘Green Amethyst’ is a false identity that misleads people who might be looking for Prasiolite. While both Amethyst and Prasiolite belong to the same mineral family, they do not exist as mere colour options but completely different gemstones with different market pricing. Since Amethyst is the most valued gemstone of the Quartz mineral family, people often try to pitch and sell Prasiolite as Green Amethyst for profiteering. The market value of such a heat-treated stone is far less than Amethyst or even Prasiolite. 

Amethyst is recognized in vedic astrology as the substitute or upratna of Blue Sapphire which means it is capable of delivering results but not without having certain repercussions. When compared with the original astrological gemstone a substitute takes much more time. In addition, the results may not meet with the expectations of the wearer. Amethyst though is suggested when a person is constrained by budget issues and is in no condition to buy Blue Sapphire.

Amethyst gemstone is associated with the planet Saturn. It is worn to strengthen the weaker Saturn as well as to benefit from its favourable occupation in a person’s horoscope.


Vedic astrology prescribes Amethyst gemstone for Capricorn and Aquarius signs while the Western astrology assigns Amethyst as the birthstone for Pisces. It can also be worn by Gemini, Virgo and Taurus.
