Amethyst is a versatile crystal that protects you, calms the spirit, attracts love and positive energy, generates wealth, and brings an authentic and inspirational quality to the person who activates and takes care of it.
Some great places to keep amethyst are on your body, in a desk, close to doors and windows, or in the medicine cabinet. In fact, you can keep amethyst in any area where you need wisdom, stability, protection, and peace.
There are many places to keep amethyst that you’ve probably never thought of. Preparing the stone and putting it in the right space makes all the difference in how this crystal can bless you.

Amethyst must be cleansed and charged before it can do anything for you. Whether you’ve just brought an amethyst home, or you have one that’s been sitting around for a while, it’s important to first cleanse it of the energy it carries and charge it with new energy.
To cleanse amethyst, place it in healthy soil, water, sunlight, or moonlight. These elements take energy from the amethyst back into the earth, then charge the stone to make it vibrant and powerful once more.
Once cleansed and charged, you can choose where to keep your amethyst based on what you want to be blessed with.
The best places to keep amethyst
You can keep amethyst…
On your crown chakra
Amethyst is closely linked to the crown chakra, at the top of the head. This chakra is the most spiritual of all chakras. The crown chakra removes blocks that hold you back in life and calms the mind, enabling you to grow in a safe space.
For even greater impact, tape the stone to the roof above an area where you spend a lot of time, such as in the TV room. This way the amethyst can connect with your crown chakra when you are sitting in that room.
In the bathroom
Amethyst is wonderful for both your health and appearance. The crystal helps skin cells regenerate to make you look younger, so it’s a good idea to keep an amethyst with your skincare products and face roller.
If you suffer from headaches, migraines, or exhaustion, keep an amethyst in your bathroom cabinet with the pills you take for these issues, and another crystal in your bedroom (which we’ll talk about next).
In a bedroom
Amethyst’s protective qualities extend into the bedroom, where it guards you from nightmares and insomnia. The crystal also relieves stress and calms the mind, which are important for good, deep rest.
Keep a cleansed and charged amethyst in your room, preferably on a nightstand that’s close to your crown chakra at the top of the head. This will help you if you’re struggling to fall asleep, have bad dreams when you do sleep, or need to lie down because your head hurts or you feel exhausted.
In your car
Amethyst is a protective stone that can be kept in a car for safety and protection. If you don’t want to keep an amethyst in your car at all times, think about cleansing and charging an amethyst to put in your car before a long journey.
On your desk
Amethyst is a great crystal to relieve stress and worry, especially when you’re feeling snowed under at work or with admin tasks. Keep a charged amethyst stone on your desk or in your desk drawer when you’re struggling with these things.
If your work is spiritual work, such as reiki or readings, keep an amethyst nearby to open your third eye. This enhances your psychic powers, and gives you greater seeing capabilities and wisdom to help others.
In a pocket
Keep amethyst in your pocket and take it with you wherever you go on days when you feel worried or restless.
The best pocket would be on the upper half of your body because amethyst is strongly linked to the crown chakra at the top of your head, but a pocket on your hips is fine if that’s all you have.
In your bra
Start by asking the amethyst for what you need, then put it in the bra cup that’s on your non-dominant side. So, if you’re right-handed place the stone on the left side of your bra and vice versa.
Your non-dominant side is your receiving side, and it helps the amethyst give you what you ask for.
During the day, put your non-dominant hand to your chest and reconnect with it, repeating your wishes out loud or quietly in your head.
On your non-dominant hand or wrist
If you want to wear amethyst as jewelry, in a beautiful bracelet or ring, it’s important to put it on your non-dominant side. If you’re right-handed, wear amethyst on your left hand as this is the side that receives gifts, and if you’re left-handed, wear the jewelry on your right hand.
When choosing a piece of jewelry, get one that’s most likely to give you what you need. For example, this amethyst bracelet with the Turkish evil eye is designed for protection.
Near doors and windows
Keeping amethyst near windows and doors that open to the outside of the house does two important things:
- It protects the house from unwanted energy coming in, especially when there’s a large cleansed and charged amethyst close to the front and back doors
- It keeps the stone’s energy inside the house, and helps the people living there feel calm, patient with each other, and inspired to create
Place a large stone or hang an amethyst ornament, like this one from Amazon, near doors and windows.
With money, gold, or silver
Amethyst attracts money and true wealth. Keep a small amethyst palm stone in your purse or handbag, and have some cash in your purse at all times so the stone knows what to attract.
If possible, put an amethyst with real gold or silver jewelry (costume jewelry won’t have any impact), or on top of a bar of gold or silver.
On a charging station
If you don’t have anywhere specific to keep your amethyst or you want to keep your stone fully charged for when you need it, create a charging station as a semi-permanent home for the crystal.
To make an amethyst charging station, use something that removes old energy from the stone and charges it with fresh energy. This can be charging crystals, such as a selenite charging bowl, healthy soil, water, salt, or any other crystal charging tool from this blog post.
