Crushed amethyst was used by the Ancient Greeks and Romans as a way to ward off intoxication. One story is told that partly this was due to the fact that the Romans sometimes put an amethyst in their wine. Then the wine could be watered down and still retain its purple color from the stones within. That meant less alcohol, and thus, less intoxication. Both the Greeks and Romans made drinking cups of amethyst and wore talismans of amethyst to prevent intoxication.
There is a Greek legend of how amethyst got its purple color. Once Dionysus was so annoyed by Artemis that he set his sacred tigers upon a maiden attending her shrine. To preserve the maiden, whose name was Amethyst, Artemis petrified her in sparkling quartz. Lamenting this virgin’s demise, Dionysus poured the contents of his cup over the statue, which immediately became infused with the purple of the grape.
Healing: Amethyst is believed to boost production of hormones, tune the endocrine system and metabolism. Releasing tension, amethyst eases headaches and any physical, emotional and psychological pain that causes tension. Amethyst brings restful sleep and treats insomnia.
