Amethyst detail.png

Amethyst is a type of mineral mined from amethyst crystals. Mining it requires the player to have a Mining level of 92, and grants 240 Mining experience.

It can be cut into certain Ranged materials with a chisel by a player with the appropriate Crafting level.

Wearing expert mining gloves while mining an amethyst crystal grants a 25% chance for the crystal to not deplete upon mining an amethyst, allowing you to mine an additional amethyst before depleting. The Varrock armour 4 double ore effect can also trigger when mining amethyst.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Speaking to Utrec in the Mining Guild will reveal that the dwarves in Keldagrim use amethyst as a construction material.
  • During development, the mineral was planned to be named "quartz".[1] After player complaints on how common quartz is in real life, Jagex renamed the mineral as "amethyst", which is a rare and valuable variety of quartz.
