What happens when you wear amethyst?
Wearing this trigonal violet quartz crystal could be the best thing you can do to enhance your well-being. Amethyst offers a veil of protection to all who wear it or keep the crystal in their spaces.
This crystal gets its name from the Greek word Amethystos (which is formed from two words, ‘a’ meaning ‘not’ and ‘metho’ that means intoxicate), signifying the protective powers of the crystal, which also protects you from intoxication.
But there is a lot more about amethyst, and though it may never be as sparkling as a diamond, it is the most stunning crystal that will shield you from harm while also bringing you loads of love, harmony, peace, and pureness.
A lot more happens to you when you wear amethyst, and these other benefits include:
- Spiritual growth– amethyst opens the third eye and the crown chakras. Placing the scone on these stones will amplify your connection to the spiritual realm, improving your spiritual well-being. This connection also means that the crystal will protect you from psychic attacks.

- Enhanced Physical health status– The other benefit of wearing amethyst is that it cures headaches and helps to manage insomnia, depression, feelings of despair, and also grief.
And so, the only question we should be answering today is this – which is the right way to wear amethyst jewelry?
Can amethyst be worn daily?
Yes. This crystal will survive daily wear thanks to its hardness, scoring 7 on Mohs Scale of Hardness.
All you need to do is to make sure that you keep it from hard surfaces that may scratch and damage it.
Which day is best to wear an amethyst stone? Why?
Saturday. While you can wear your amethyst jewelry daily, the ideal day to enjoy the crystal’s benefits is Saturday.
Wear your amethyst ring or pendant necklace at sunrise on Saturday during Shukla Paksha. It is activated and more powerful on Saturday dawn between 5 and 7 or during the day between 1 and 2 pm.
However, wear your amethyst ring during the descending moon or Krishna Paksha on Saturday evening.
Can anyone wear amethyst?
Yes. The beauty of amethyst is that anyone can wear it, not just individuals born in February. But if you believe in Vedic Astrology, you must take note of the exceptions to wear amethyst.
Who should not wear amethyst stone jewelry?
Scorpio, Taurus, and Pisces.
While Taurus is an earth sign, it’s under Venus’s rule – amethyst is the opposite; it’s a water element and may not have the best effects on the wearers – in some cases, it may cause instability.
On the other hand, Scorpios and Pisces are water signs. Although this should make them compatible with amethyst which is also a water sign, this isn’t always the case because the interaction of these water signs with their respective planets, Pluto, and Neptune, make these signs too emotional. Amethyst on Pisces or Scorpio will make one feel too deeply. So, keep this in mind before wearing amethyst.
Who should wear amethyst stone jewelry?
All other signs can wear amethyst. But for maximum benefits, wear amethyst if you are a Leo, Cancer, or Aries. Pisces and Scorpio can wear amethyst stone jewelry, but with caution.
You could also wear amethyst if you have been struggling with the adverse effects of Saturn. Amethyst is also the ideal crystal stone for you if you are struggling or going through a challenging time.
This is the case because Amethyst promotes serenity, calm, and peace – these will help you better handle anger, anxiety, fear, or negative thoughts.
