Which crystals go well with Amethyst: a guide to crystal combinations

Amethyst is a very popular and versatile crystal. It is a powerful protective stone that has many healing properties such as helping with a good night’s sleep and clearing the mind. But Amethyst is also a great crystal to combine with others and enhance their powers. We have put together some of the best combinations for Amethyst and the benefits this can have.

Rose Quartz and Amethyst

Rose Quartz is another crystal which is equally as popular as Amethyst. For this reason, one of the most common questions asked is “can Rose Quartz go with Amethyst?” The answer to this is yes. Rose Quartz goes extremely well with the Amethyst crystal. Not only do the two powerful crystals work well together but they look great together too due to their stunning colours – the deep purple hues of Amethyst, and the rose pink tones of the Rose Quartz. When the two crystals are combined for crystal healing, they work hard to restore self love, trust and harmony in yourself and relationships. One of the most powerful healing benefits is that of those who are suffering with anxieties and need time to focus on themselves. This is because the Rose Quartz encourages self-love, whilst the Amethyst can help to reduce depression and anxiety levels. 

These two crystals are great at combating relationship problems and helping a person through tough times to aid them in finding forgiveness.

Clear Quartz and Amethyst

Another member of the Quartz family which goes well with Amethyst is the Clear Quartz crystal. The clear Quartz is known as the “master healer” in the crystal world, and when paired with Amethyst the two become a very effective protection method. They both absorb the negative energies surrounding the user and balance the mental, physical and emotional planes. They are both also connected to the crown chakra meaning the pair are great for use in meditation when trying to enhance the user’s psychic abilities and protect from psychic attacks. 

Carnelian and Amethyst

Carnelian is another great crystal for pairing with Amethyst. The healing effects of Carnelian help to reduce anger and banish any emotional negativity the user may have. As Amethyst helps to diminish sadness and irritability when paired with the Carnelian, the combination is great for people who suffer from any emotional instability. 

Another apparent benefit of these two crystals being placed together is to increase fertility. Although this has never been scientifically proven, it is said that if the user places the two crystals in the bedroom whilst trying to conceive the healing vibrations from the two crystals will increase the chances of fertility. This is because the Carnelian is known to stimulate sexuality whilst the Amethyst relieves any stress.

Citrine and Amethyst

This combination is great for encouraging success and prosperity in both personal and business life of the user. It does this by enhancing your confidence and courage whilst motivating you to do what it takes to succeed. Amethyst dispels any anxieties and fears whilst the Citrine attracts joy and positive vibes making it a great pairing for success. In fact, the pairing of Amethyst and Citrine can sometimes naturally occur in the form of “Ametrine” proving further that the two crystals go great together.

Smoky Quartz and Amethyst

The third member of the Quartz family worth mentioning is the Smoky Quartz. One of the reasons they go so well together (and the same for any Amethyst and Quartz crystals) is because although the Amethyst does not have Quartz in its name, it is in fact part of the Quartz family. This means the two crystals compliment each other very well. This pairing works especially well for people who are looking to relieve their stress and anxieties. Smoky Quartz is a crystal known for bringing serenity and calmness to its user, whilst the Amethyst is a natural tranquilliser, relieving the fears and stress of the user. The two placed together can enhance each other’s effects and help a person overcome their depression and anxiety. When used together they can also aid in a good night’s sleep by fighting insomnia and any negative energies in the form of nightmares. The best method to do this is to place them by your bedside or under your pillow while you sleep. 

Labradorite and Amethyst

These two crystals connect to different chakras. Predominantly, the Amethyst is connected to the crown chakra, whilst the Labradorite is connected to the third eye chakra. This combination makes it perfect for people looking for spiritual awareness and mental clarity. The Labradorite enhances spiritual practices and the Amethyst encourages spiritual awareness, making the pairing perfect for meditation and to promote psychic abilities. 

Another great benefit of this crystal combination is assisting with change. Labradorite is the crystal of transformation and aids people who are experiencing a change in their lives. Amethyst compliments this well as it is known for combating fears and anxieties which can tend to come hand in hand with changes in our lives. 

How to use the crystal combinations

Healing with crystal combinations is exactly the same as healing with one crystal. There are many different ways to tap into their energies and experience the full benefits. We have previously put together a comprehensive list of all the ways to use crystals for healing in this blog. However, we have listed some of the best ways for combination crystals below. 


One of the most calming ways to tap into the energies of the crystals is through meditation. This is especially helpful when using combinations such as the Labradorite and Amethyst as they assist with connecting to spiritual awareness and are perfect for meditation. This way of crystal healing is good for people who suffer with stress and anxieties as the meditation process should be calming and relaxing, helping to clear the mind.

There are many ways to meditate with crystals. It is best to experiment and find the one which you feel more comfortable with. You can lay on your back, or sit cross legged on the floor with a crystal in each hand. Or, if you have multiple crystals, you can place them in a circle around you. If you do have just the two crystals you can still place them at either side of you whilst you meditate rather than holding them. 

Crystal Jewellery

If you are looking to use crystals for healing but you would like to incorporate this into your everyday life without much effort, then purchasing jewellery versions of the stone could be the best option. The stones do not need to be touching or even in the same piece of jewellery. For example you could have one as a necklace and the other as earrings. However you choose to wear the crystals you will benefit from their healing vibrations throughout the day without having to think about it.

Sleep Healing

As mentioned before, you can place the crystals under your pillow whilst you sleep to reap the benefits. This is known as sleep healing. This method is especially helpful when trying to heal nightmares and insomnia such as Smoky Quartz and Amethyst. If placing them under your pillow is too uncomfortable, try placing them under the mattress or even at the side of you whilst you sleep. You will still benefit from their healing vibrations.

Place in your pocket

Another easy and simple way to use the crystals is to have them in your pocket, or somewhere on your prosn such as in a handbag or purse/wallet. This way, throughout the day you can benefit from their healing abilities, and by simply knowing you have them with you. This can also come in handy when you feel stressed or in need of the crystals as you can hold them and begin to find your relaxation and positive energy again.


The Amethyst stones are a great crystal to obtain and use on its own or paired with its perfect partner. It all depends on the user and what they wish to focus on and heal with the crystals. We have a large selection of crystals which go brilliantly with Amethyst and come in different forms to help you find the one that suits you the most.
