How to Clean Amethyst

Clean Amethyst Jewellery regularly to maintain the brilliance of the stone. The February birthstone, is from the quartz family of minerals, which means it’s a relatively durable gemstone, scoring 7 out of 10 on the Mohs Scale of Mineral Hardness.  As with all gemstones, care should be taken to protect amethyst from scratches and sharp blows. Avoid wearing your amethyst jewellery when cleaning, gardening, or at the gym.

The best way to clean an amethyst with gold or platinum setting is to use Connoisseurs Fine Jewellery Cleaner. This non-toxic cleanser cleans within 30 seconds for the most effective results. The Dazzle Drops Advanced Jewellery Cleaner is also an option, it allows for a fresh solution to be made every time you clean your Amethyst Jewellery.

If your amethyst jewellery comes with silver, use Connoisseurs Fine Jewellery cleaner to first clean the gemstone. Thereafter, use the Connoisseurs Silver Polishing Cloth or Connoisseurs Jewellery Wipes to clean the silver setting. Otherwise, use Connoisseurs Dazzle Drops Silver Cleansing Crème. This solution cleans and removes tarnish from silver and is safe to use on all gemstones.
