English term or phrase: amethyst
I am searching for the Sanskrit word for amethyst (a purple colored, precious gem).
Margaret Canaday
Jambumani
Explanation:
'Amethyst' would be 'jambumani'. 'Jambu' means 'the colour purple'.

'Neelam' or 'Neelmani' would be incorrect translation as it means 'sapphire'.

However, both 'jambumani' and 'neelmani' have Sanskrit roots.

Pronounced similar to Neal-money. Both these words refer to the same precious stone. Neelmanee is the original Sanskrit word, while neelam is Hindi-ised form of neelmanee.
