Amethyst is currently the highest level ore players can mine. It is used in the creation of high-level ranging ammo. At high Mining levels, players can expect to mine anywhere from 80 to 100 amethyst per hour for profits of 348,080-435,100 coins. Players may wish to bring a chisel with them to craft amethyst bolt tips, arrowtips, javelin heads or dart tips. These stack in your inventory allowing you to avoid banking indefinitely, further decreasing the intensity. Due to the nature of the Grand Exchange, crafting Amethyst into other products, in most cases, cut into the overall profit, furthermore, crafting Amethyst is a longer process than banking the ore as is. Unidentified Minerals may be exchanged for mining gloves, superior mining gloves or soft clay packs, and bags full of gems at Belona's Mining Guild Mineral Exchange.

Amethyst can be used to make the following items:
