Michaela Dietz

"Amethyst" is a Crystal Gem, and one of the main protagonists in Steven Universe.


Amethyst has long, very pale, light-purple hair which covers her left eye. She has plump lips and lilac-purple skin, and a heavier build than the other Crystal Gems. Her gemstone is an amethyst, which is embedded in her chest. She is slightly taller than Steven, but shorter than the other Crystal Gems.

Everyday Wear

She wears a dark purple, off-shoulder tunic with a black tank top underneath, black leggings with a star shape cut out on her knees, a smaller rip above the cut out on the left leg, and white ankle boots.

Casual Wear

In "Beach Party", she wears a dark violet tank top, pale green fanny pack, lavender shorts, and has her hair up in a ponytail. She is also barefoot.


Much like other characters, Amethyst had a different design in the pilot. She had more messy hair worn by a star-shaped gold hair-clip, wore a long-sleeved purple sweater, black tank top underneath, dull yellow fanny pack, leggings with poorly-cut circles, and fold-over ankle boots.


Amethyst is fun and care-free. Loud and full of laughter, she finds everything amusing, but can be very emotional and isn't afraid to act on impulse. She is also shown to be a comic-relief. She has overall bad manners, including chewing with her mouth open and picking her nose. She doesn't like her things to be neat, as shown when Pearl cleans up her room, only for her to make it a mess again in "Together Breakfast" and claims to have a system for it. In relation to Steven, she tends to indulge him more and partake in activities with him. She is the Crystal Gem who is the hardest to crack in emotional situations, though at times she has shown to have a major concern for Steven, such as in "So Many Birthdays" where she was very worried about him aging. She seems to love eating and sleeping, as she has been seen eating and/or resting far more than the other Gems (even though Gems don't need to eat or sleep). In "On the Run" Amethyst reveals to Steven, that unlike Garnet, Pearl, and Rose, Amethyst did not originate from the Gem Homeworld. Instead she was created in a canyon-like area the Gems call Kindergarten. Fortunately the Gems shut it down, and Amethyst was recruited afterwards. However because of her dark past, she sometimes feels out of place from the other Gems.


All Gems have the ability to summon a weapon, shapeshift, fuse, and retreat to their gemstones to heal when injured. When activating her gem, she summons an energy whip. She can fuse with Pearl to form Opal as seen in "Giant Woman", Garnet to form Sugilite in "Coach Steven", and Garnet and Pearl to form Alexandrite in "Fusion Cuisine". She can also rapidly roll in a ball-like shape when attacking enemies as seen in "Watermelon Steven". In "On the Run", she summons two whips at the same time, which conduct energy causing a big explosion.

annoying him. She and Steven seem to have the most similar personalities and as a

result get along very well. Despite their sibling-esque nature, Amethyst teased Steven in "An Indirect Kiss" for caring about her.


While Amethyst often does whatever she wants to do, she will listen and take orders from Garnet. She dislikes being told what to do, but she respects Garnet's leadership abilities and judgment.


Amethyst and Pearl have vastly different personalities and Pearl is often seen scolding Amethyst. In return, Amethyst sometimes will tease her and generally get on her nerves. She does, however, care about Pearl as a teammate and friend, as shown in "On the Run".

Rose Quartz

It appears that Amethyst and Rose were good friends, as Amethyst describes her as "the person that was always there for me." Amethyst was hurt when Rose Quartz started seeing Greg and had less time to spend with her.


"Maximum Capacity" revealed that Amethyst and Greg used to be good friends, marathoning the "Little Butler" TV show together for days at a time. However, Greg was uncomfortable with her shape shifting around him and he broke it off when she transformed into Rose Quartz. They seem to have patched things up recently, but they are still nervous around each other.

    • Darn, you posted my exact idea, Judgekoo! I was thinking, okay, Amethyst either liked Greg, and Rose "took" him from her, or she blamed him ...
