Amethyst (specifically Amethyst Facet-5 Cut-8XM) is a member of the Crystal Gems. She is the last known Gem manufactured as a part of the Gem Homeworld's Kindergarten project, one of the last surviving Gems on Earth. After being found by Rose Quartz and the other Crystal Gems, Amethyst helped her friends protect the Earth over the next four millennia and often aids in the shenanigans of Steven Universe.
Years later, Amethyst lives a peaceful life with the Crystal Gems, no longer struggling with low self-esteem. Though she was struck by a Gem Rejuvenator during Spinel's return and had her memory wiped, Amethyst was eventually restored by Steven, who helps her recall her fondness for him and her team through past experiences on Earth.
Amethyst has a very troubled backstory. She was created as a prototype Gem on Earth and was seen as "corrupted" by the other Amethysts. She was the ugly duckling of her litter, and it still remains a question how she was found by Rose Quartz, Garnet, and Pearl.
What is known, she was created around 5,000 years before the Steven Universe timeline focuses on the series itself. As of "That Will be All" Amethyst has made amends with the other Amethysts and became friends.
After Rose Quartz died for Steven, Amethyst has been acting like an older sister for him. However, in "On the Run," she introduced her true colors; she is actually a Gem who suffered a lot and is suicidal.
