Amethyst is a fairly hard gem, number 7 on the Mohs scale of hardness, this will indicate that the gem is fine for daily wear, however if worn with harder jewellery such as diamond, rubies or sapphires you risk scratching the amethyst jewellery.

Can my amethyst go into water?

Yes. It can go into water, however should not be submerged for long periods as this may damage the gem.
