Amethyst History and Uses:
Amethyst derives its name from ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated” and relates to an ancient Greek legend. Dionysus, the god of celebration and intoxication declared he would have revenge on mortals for not partaking of his wine by having the beautiful maiden Amethyst eaten by his tigers while she was on her way to worship at the temple of Artemis, the virgin huntress. Amethyst called to Artemis for protection and the goddess turned her into a pure white quartz statue to save her from the tigers. When Dionysus saw how beautiful she was he was filled with remorse at his ruthlessness and began to weep into his cup of wine which spilled over the quartz statue turning it a beautiful shade of purple. Amethyst can range in colour from lilac pink, to purple red to deep purple. In ancient times the Romans inlaid their cups with Amethyst believing it to protect them from drunkenness. Catholic bishops wore amethyst rings to prevent mystical intoxication and kissing the ring was thought to keep people focused on spiritual thoughts. It was used for protection from black magic and treachery and to ensure victory in war and in hunting.
