Camillus Leonardus remarked of the amethyst, “This gem is reckoned among the purple and transparent stones, mixed with a violet color, emitting rosy sparkles.” The Indian variety is the most precious. It is held to sharpen the wit, prevent drunkenness when bound to the navel, turn away evil thoughts, and render knowledge of the future in dreams. The stone gives peace of mind.When drunk in poison, it is thought to expel the poison and render the barren fruitful. Bacchus’ head was frequently engraved on it since this god was a favorite with the Roman women.
Amethyst is a variety of quartz, but differs from the common quartz chiefly because of its violet to purple coloring. It is the birthstone for February. The stone is common in Europe and Scotland with some of the finest specimens being found in India, Sri Lanka , and Brazil. It is a semi-precious stone that is available in color that range from clear green to deep purple. This rock which means ‘sober,’ has been mentioned many times in history and religion. While it is desired for its beauty, it is coveted even more for its powers, metaphysical properties, physical and spiritual benefits.
These stones can be found all over the world, were precious gems. However; the discovery of amethyst mines in Brazil reduced the value of these rocks and made them semi-precious. Significantly, the value of amethysts is not determined by their carats but by their color. Synthetic amethysts have been created and are nearly indistinguishable from real gemstones. However, they are not widely available.
Accurate historical accounts show that Greeks, Romans, Egyptians and even the Chinese, saw the amethyst as a precious stone.
Egyptian diplomats would wear this stone to protect them from being attacked while traveling. They also used it to eliminate feelings of fear as well. Similarly, European soldiers going into battle would wear amulets made with this crystal to ensure bravery and fast healing.

In later years, this jewel was seen as a symbol of royalty. This stone was used to decorate jewelry owned by kings and queens, notably Queen Catherine of Russia and Queen Elizabeth II of England.
The amethyst crystal has been found in historically accurate accounts but has been referenced in mythology. The mentions of the amethyst in mythology usually point to its origin and meaning. Two main myths explain the origin of the amethyst crystal.
The Roman God of Wine and Amethyst: According to the one account, Bacchus, the Roman god of wine had been offended by a mortal. In his anger, he stated that his Tigers would eat the next person he encountered. Amethyst (a beautiful virgin) on her way to worship Diana was the person whom he encountered. The maiden begged Diana to save her and so Diana turned her into a pure white crystal. Bacchus felt remorse over his actions and poured his wine over his crystal to show his remorse. The wine poured over Amethyst provided the purple hue the stone has now. In a similar account, it was said that Dionysus (The Greek god of libations) shed tears of remorse over the rock and that is how the purple hue of the amethyst was created.
Greeks and Romans’ Amethyst Studs: Another version of this myth states that Amethyst was a young maiden being pursued by Bacchus. When she asked the goddess Diana to save her, she was turned into a white stone, and in anger, Bacchus threw his cup of wine on the stone. It was also said that due to the nature of the creation of the crystal and the involvement of the god of wine in it, the rock could prevent inebriation or drunkenness. This caused some Greeks and Romans to place amethyst studs on their wine goblets. They believed that drinking with these cups would ensure that they did not get drunk no matter how much they drank.
St. Valentine’s Amethyst Ring: An unrelated myth is that St. Valentine had an amethyst ring with an image of Cupid (the Roman god of love) carved onto the stone. While traveling, lovers or couples who saw him would request that he marry them. This made the amethyst crystal symbolic of faithful love and attracting true love.
