Amethysts Have a Fascinating History
Found in a multitude of interesting rock forms such as geodes and gem clusters, amethysts have a history as interesting as their crystalline appearance. As the ancient Greek legend goes, these gemstones are named after a young mortal woman named Amethyst. The Greek wine god, Baccus, became enraged due to an insult, and promised to kill the first mortal he met in order to avenge himself. Amethyst unwittingly came under his fire whilst visiting the shrine of the moon goddess, Diana.
As Baccus approached with his tigers, to protect Amethyst, Diana immediately sprung to life and turned Amethyst into pure, solid crystal. In his guilt, Baccus then poured grape juice over Amethysts crystallised body, giving the crystal its famous purple complexion.
