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 ranging materials with a chisel by a player with the appropriate Crafting level.
Amethyst can be used to make the following items:
- Speaking to Utrec in the Mining Guild will reveal that the dwarves in Keldagrim use it as a construction material.
- During development, the mineral was planned to be named "quartz". After player complaints on how common quartz is in real life, Jagex renamed the mineral as "amethyst", which is rarer and more valuable.
- In real life, amethyst is a violet variety of quartz often used in jewellery that is believed to protect its owner from drunkenness.
