Can amethyst go in water?


I recently received an amethyst crystal as a gift and I was wondering if I can use it in water. I have heard conflicting opinions from different people and I am not sure what to believe. I want to use it as a decorative item in my water feature in the garden but I am worried if it would cause any harm to the crystal or the water. Can anyone shed some light on this topic and let me know if amethyst can go in water? If not, what would be the best way to use it as a decorative item without damaging it?

Thank you!

Hi everyone,

I thought I would add my two cents to the conversation about using amethyst in water. I have used amethyst crystals in my water bottle before, and while it was a very pleasant experience, I did notice some changes in the crystal over time.

The water tasted great, and I felt more relaxed and centered from drinking it throughout the day. However, after a few weeks of using the same crystal, I noticed that it had become dull and faded in color. It seemed to have lost its energy and vitality.

After doing some research, I learned that some crystals can be damaged or weakened by exposure to water, especially if they are of a lower quality or have been treated with chemicals. So, if you're planning on using amethyst in water, it's important to choose high-quality stones that have been properly cleaned and cared for.

You may also want to consider using a separate container or bottle just for your crystal-infused water, rather than putting the crystal directly into your regular water bottle. This can help protect the crystal and ensure that it stays in good condition.

Overall, I think using amethyst in water can be a wonderful way to enjoy its energy and healing properties, but it's important to be careful and mindful about how you use it, especially over the long-term.


Hello everyone,

I have used amethyst in water before and I must say that it was quite an interesting experience. However, it is important to note that not all amethyst crystals are safe for use in water. Some of them may contain impurities that can react with water and affect its quality.

In my experience, I made sure to use only high-quality amethyst crystals that were thoroughly cleaned and free from impurities. I placed them in a glass bottle filled with filtered water and left it under the moonlight for a whole night. The next day, I drank the water and noticed an increase in my energy levels and a feeling of calmness.

However, after a few uses, I noticed that the crystal had lost its color and was no longer as vibrant and shiny as before. This could be because of the chemical reaction between the crystal and the water. So, I stopped using that crystal in water and kept it as a decorative item.

In conclusion, while amethyst can be used in water, it is important to use only high-quality crystals that are free from impurities and toxins. It's always better to consult with a professional before using any crystal in water, especially if you have any health concerns or allergies.



I have been using amethyst in water for some time now and haven't had any negative experience so far. I use it to make crystal-infused water, which I think, is a great way to benefit from the properties of the crystal.

What I do is that I thoroughly cleanse the amethyst under running water and then place it in a small jar filled with filtered water. I then leave the jar in direct sunlight for a few hours to allow the crystal to infuse its energy into the water. The water tastes amazing and I feel more relaxed and centered after drinking it.

However, I must mention that not all crystals are safe for water. Some stones like malachite, pyrite, and selenite contain toxic minerals that can harm your health. It's important to do your research before using any crystal in water and make sure it's safe to use

Furthermore, avoid adding hot water to the jar as sudden temperature changes can cause the crystal to crack. It's also important to remember that crystals, like any natural substance, can break down over time, so you might want to replace your crystal every once in a while.

Hope this helps.



I have used amethyst in water as a decorative piece in my fish pond, and it looked really beautiful. However, over time, I noticed that the crystal had changed its color, and it started to look corroded. This could be because amethyst has a tendency to dissolve in water when exposed to it for a long time.

To avoid this, I started using amethyst chips instead of a full-sized crystal in my pond. The chips were small and didn't change the color or quality of the water, so it worked pretty well. I also learned that other types of stones such as quartz or citrine can be a great alternative to amethyst if you're looking to use crystals as a decorative piece in your pond or aquarium.

Overall, I would say that it's essential to do your research before using any crystal in water, especially if you're using it for a long time or with living organisms like fish or plants. It's also important to regularly clean your stones and keep them free from any impurities or toxins.


Hi there,

I have personally used amethyst in water and have not experienced any negative effects on the crystal or the water. In fact, I find that it enhances the energy of the water and makes it more refreshing to drink. However, it is important to note that some stones may contain toxic chemicals or minerals that can leach into the water and harm your health.

Before using amethyst or any other crystal in water, it is always best to do your research and make sure that the stone is safe to use. You can also consult with a crystal expert or a holistic healer who can guide you on which stones are safe for water.

If you are unsure about using amethyst in water, you can always use it as a decorative item outside of the water feature. You can place it around the edges of the water feature, or in a nearby garden bed to enhance the beauty and energy of your outdoor space.

I hope this helps!


Hi there,

I enjoy using amethyst in my bath water, and I find that it is very relaxing and calming for my mind and body. I usually add a few small amethyst crystals to the bathtub, along with some Epsom salts and essential oils, and soak for about 20 minutes.

I have never had any issues with the crystal dissolving or changing color, and I find that the water takes on a lovely lavender hue that adds to the overall relaxing experience. I know that some people may be concerned about using crystals in water, but as long as you are using high-quality stones and cleaning them properly, I don't see any harm in it.

Of course, it's always a good idea to consult with a professional if you have any concerns or health issues before using any crystals in water or on your body. But, in my experience, using amethyst in bath water is a great way to benefit from its calming energy and promote relaxation in a natural way.

I hope that helps, and happy soaking!
