Black Tourmaline, Emerald Root, and Lapis Lazuli are great crystal combinations for Amethyst. Some, like Black Tourmaline and Emerald Root, have different energies from Amethyst. Other crystals we suggest complement it and make its benefits more comprehensive. You may also pair Amethyst with stones like Lapis Lazuli that are more similar in energy.
Amethyst and Lapis Lazuli will enhance each other’s energy. They also complement each other in the slight aspects in which they differ.
Amethyst is a member of the Quartz family that’s usually purple in color (although there are other naturally occurring colors).
It is the stone of transformation and transmutation. It will change the vibrations of whatever situation, object, or being it comes into contact with.
After interacting with Amethyst, whatever has come into contact with it will have a higher vibration.

1. Black Tourmaline and Amethyst Combination
While Amethyst can transform and transmute low vibrational energy into higher vibrational energy.
It does not absorb any excesses that are present in the environment. When Amethyst is used by itself, the negative energy will transform.
Sometimes, when lower vibrations are present in excess, it is necessary for these energies to be absorbed by someone other than the living beings that inhabit a space.
That’s when Black Tourmaline comes into play. As Amethyst works mostly on the higher chakras (the Third Eye Chakra and the Crown Chakra), its energy lacks grounding.
The Crown Chakra right above your head and the Root Chakra at the end of your spine are two ends of a channel.
Both need to be looked after, or neither will be entirely effective.
An element of grounding needs to be added whenever someone wants to establish a channel with Divine energy.
This is where Black Tourmaline can be very useful. It absorbs, protects, and, as we have already said, it brings the energy back to the ground.
Both of these crystals together cover different aspects of spiritual protection and cleansing.
2. Black Onyx and Amethyst Combination
Black Onyx offers an organized, down-to-earth energy. Amethyst can help some people get their circadian rhythm in order.
It does so by giving them energy when they are supposed to complete a day’s work.
It also quiets their anxious, intrusive thoughts when they are supposed to rest and recover.
However, as Amethyst works energetically on the upper chakras, an element of connecting to the healing energy of Mother Earth is still needed.
When you connect to the Root Chakra, you also start to get organized in a material way.
You start to secure whatever you need to feel safe and get your affairs in the material world in order.
Black Onyx does just that. It energetically encourages you to get organized in the material world.
Do you feel like your life is in utter chaos? Do you need to fix both your sleeping schedule and your time management in your day-to-day life?
If the answer to one or both questions is yes, then this combination is for you.
3. Green Aventurine and Amethyst Combination
Amethyst transforms and transmutes whatever it comes into contact with. It is not gentle in its approach.
The transmutation starts as soon as the stone comes into contact with the person, place, or being. It is completed as quickly as possible.
For people who are sensitive to this movement of energy, it can feel like an aggressive process.
The addition of a crystal with a more gentle energy that also offers nurturing and support from the heart space can help smooth out the transformation process Amethyst brings to the table.
This combination is especially recommended for children, companion animals, people in a fragile mental state (though tread lightly, perhaps Quartz is not the way to go with them), and the elderly.
4. Moonstone and Amethyst Combination
These two are similar in energy. They both clear out blockages in your Third Eye chakra. They can also energize it if that is what is needed.
As a result, your intuition will become stronger, no matter which crystal you choose to work with.
However, Moonstone is more gentle and gradual than Amethyst in its approach to enhancing intuition.
Both crystals, with the different energies they bring to the table, are necessary for a complete process of transformation.
Amethyst can get rid of the biggest obstacles quickly, while Moonstone can get rid of the more entrenched ones that may take a bit more time, perseverance, and even care to get rid of.
While Amethyst can help you regulate your circadian rhythm, its energy is more linear, associated with the different times that take place during the 24 hours of the day.
In this sense, Moonstone offers complementary energy.
This is so because it is connected to the cycles of the Moon and therefore to the time understood as the days of the month. Its energy is also more cyclical than linear.
This combination not only offers a deeper connection with one’s intuition and inner voice but also a better administration of your energy and vitality throughout both the day and the month.
The best part? They help you manage your energy levels in a way that you won’t feel on a conscious level.
5. Emerald Root and Amethyst Combination
Emerald root offers emotional support and nurturing during spiritual transitions. It does so from the heart space.
Amethyst can unleash all sorts of transformation, including spiritual turning points. It’s better to err on the side of caution and have Emerald ready, just in case.
While spiritual transitions always happen for the best and are often divinely guided, they can be painful, too.
You may have to end relationships that aren’t serving your highest good.
You may find yourself having to quit or even being fired from your job if it’s an obstacle to your higher purpose.
You may have to move homes or even cities if your current environment isn’t serving your soul.
All of this can understandably cause sadness and pain. This is the case even if it’s for the best.
While Amethyst enacts all of these necessary changes, Emerald works as a soothing hug so your more painful emotions don’t get the best of you.
6. Clear Quartz and Amethyst Combination
Clear Quartz works as an amplifier of energy. It can also help to direct the energy that you decide to set it with.
This is the case for either the energy that’s present in your intention or the energy of another crystal.
As an added benefit, Clear Quartz can fill the space that’s left void after removing negative energy.
It fills said void with the high-vibrational energy it attracts and amplifies.
Working with this crystal is especially important when your Amethyst piece starts to look rather dull or feels weak when you hold it.
If you’re in urgent need of its benefits and can’t make time to take proper care so as to restore it to its harmonious, natural state, then, combining it with Clear Quartz is the best choice.
7. Citrine and Amethyst Combination
Processes of transformation can sometimes be hard to digest, to say the least.
As Amethyst can initiate powerful processes of transformation, it is a great idea to pair it with Citrine to help with hard pills to swallow.
Citrine also aids with literal physical symptoms from the stress of transmutation.
It also offers energy and vitality to help you endure said processes of transformation.
As Citrine works mainly on your Solar Plexus Chakra, it will also provide you with a sense of personal power that will allow you not to lose yourself in the transmutation.
8. Chrysoprase and Amethyst Combination
One of the possible uses of Amethyst is as a provider of courage.
When placed on the Solar Plexus chakra, it can transform any fear you are storing there into more high-vibrational energy.
You can complete this courage elixir by adding Chrysoprase to the mix.
This stone will give you the strength you need to be brave from the Heart Chakra.
In this way, it won’t only be about getting rid of the fear you store in your aura, but also about having courage from a place of love and compassion.
9. Lapis Lazuli and Amethyst Combination
Both of these crystals can be used to enhance intuition. This is so because they both strengthen and harmonize the Third Eye Chakra.
However, they have different approaches. While Amethyst can help your intuition in general, Lapis Lazuli hones in on your interpersonal relationships.
How do others perceive you? How do you want to be perceived? How do you perceive yourself? Do all of these perceptions match? Why or why not?
Working with these two crystals together will make you get an understanding of the full picture and make the effects of Lapis more potent.
Plus, they are both protective against envy and other bad intentions directed your way.
10. Labradorite and Amethyst Combination
These two crystals have similar energies. They both help you work on your intuition and be a channel for Divine wisdom.
Labradorite can also help you align what you say and how you communicate with your Divine purpose.
It encourages you to be authentic to who you truly are on the inside. Both crystals are great for protection, especially when used in tandem.
Labradorite also gets rid of more heavy-duty energy obstacles.
11. Lepidolite and Amethyst Combination
Lepidolite is the anesthetic from the mineral world. However, it is not meant to be used on its own.
It is able to soothe the pain in your heart and provide you with a much needed respite from your spiritual wounds as you process them.
But it has also been known to give nightmares to those who choose to sleep with it.
This is a pity, as it can provide calm to even the worst insomniac out there. However, when combined with other crystals, it works like a charm.
The general recommendation is to pair it with a softer crystal like rose quartz. However, amethyst may not be that poor of a choice.
It can transmute its more negative effects while you sleep. Lepidolite will, in turn, make the transformations enacted by amethyst less ruthless.
These are a great combo for people who recur to amethyst for some help combating insomnia and getting some quality sleep.
12. Blue Lace Agate and Amethyst Combination
Another great combo for the anxious. Blue Lace Agate soothes nerves almost instantly.
Its energy is so gentle that experts approve of its interaction with babies.
Of course, the blue lace agate pieces we choose for babies should be large enough to avoid them swallowing the stone.
They should always be supervised so they do not use it to hurt themselves and others.
Amethyst energizes, but it does so from a positive place.
When used together, it can help anxious people to both calm their nerves but, at the same time, not to succumb to paralyzation that sometimes anxiety can bring about.
13. Purple Fluorite and Amethyst Combination
This combination is excellent for students and people looking to enhance their intuition.
Purple fluorite can translate the language of Amethyst into terms the logical mind can understand.
The Spirit and the mind in sacred practices such as Reiki are considered to be somewhat separate, although they have a symbiotic relationship and affect each other.
Amethyst is more connected to the Spirit, and Fluorite is more connected to the mind.
When they share a color, they can help translate each other’s energy.
How to use crystal combinations for Amethyst
Meditate while lying down with the crystals on your forehead
The correct way to meditate with Amethyst is to place it on your Third Eye Chakra.
It has been known, however, to alleviate all sorts of headaches. This is the case no matter the cause or the location.
It shouldn’t replace proper medical attention or medication other than a simple Ibuprofen, but the resource is there if you believe you take too many painkillers.
However, you shouldn’t do this with all crystal combinations.
The head is also a pretty sensitive energetic point in your physical body and some crystals may cause you sensations of pain and unease when placed there.
The crystals on this list that are safe to place on your head are Black Tourmaline, Moonstone, Blue Lace Agate, Lepidolite, Black Onyx, and Emerald.
Take a bath or shower with them
Water is great to direct the energy of your crystals directly to your physical body and aura.
Of course, not all crystals that go great with Amethyst can resist being in contact with water. It is an awful idea to expose Lepidolite, for example, to water.
Some safe crystals that are safe to immerse in water alongside Amethyst, or take into the shower with you, include Clear Quartz, Citrine, and Blue Lace Agate.
Because of the energetic boost Clear Quartz and Citrine give you, it is recommended that you include them in your morning shower or in baths you take during the daytime.
Blue Lace Agate is the better choice for the nighttime.
If you choose to take a bath, do your best to avoid ingesting the bathwater.
If any rash or another skin reaction happens after you take a crystal bath, discontinue this use immediately. It is, however, extremely unlikely that this will happen.
Place under your pillow or nightstand
Some of the crystal combinations, like Amethyst and Lepidolite, help to induce sleep.
If you dislike the idea of sleeping with a rock under your pillow, you can always make a sachet using a cloth bag and some cotton around the stone pairing to make it softer.
Remember to take the stones out of the sachet every once in a while to cleanse and recharge. Placing them on your nightstand is equally effective.
Keep them in your wallet for stagnant finance
Of course, it is very unlikely that the people reading this store all of their wealth in their wallet.
However, the wallet is still a relevant symbol of how you handle your abundance.
If you don’t use a wallet, placing the stones on a debit card while you’re not using it also works. This also works if your wallet is too small to fit your crystals.
Amethyst will transmute and bring some much needed movement through this symbolic but powerful act, and the other crystal will bring in the sort of energy you need.
Unless the situation calls for a slowing down of money, I recommend only using energizing crystal pairings like Amethyst and Citrine and Amethyst and Clear Quartz.
If you feel the need to protect your wallet (figuratively, literally, or both) it makes sense to turn to the pairings of Amethyst and Lapis Lazuli or Amethyst and Black Onyx.
Even though by itself Amethyst is an incredibly versatile stone, pairing it with other crystals, either those that have similar energy, like Lapis Lazuli or Labradorite, or those that have different energies, like Chrysoprase or Black Tourmaline, is still a great idea.
This is so because pairing this crystal with others will help enhance some of the different benefits of Amethyst.
Remember to be mindful of your intention when pairing the crystals and using them.
