Categories: Gemstones

Amethyst is a high quality form of quartz crystal that is naturally found as clusters in a nodular stone. Known by the chemical name silicon dioxide, this stone is sometimes found in volcanic rugs or small cavities in rocks. Amethyst obtains its purple color through a combination of manganese impurities and iron.

Its name comes from the Greek word "amethystos" which means sober and not drunken. This precious stone was said to be used by warriors to avoid intoxication during wars, so if you drink wine from amethyst cup, it is believed you will be safe from getting drunk. The ancient Greeks believed that Amethyst gave the wearer power and protected them against intoxication and overindulgence. Although it is characterized by its purple color, it has other variations ranging from lavender to reddish or deep purple. Purple has long been the color of royalty and for this reason, amethyst has always been very popular throughout history. The British crown jewels are amazed with amethysts and the Egyptian royalty also favors it. It is also recognized as a symbol for wisdom, luck and spirituality.
