The Story Behind Amethyst Crystals

Amethyst is one of the world’s beautiful and storied variety of gemstones that has been coveted throughout millennia of human history. A form of quartz famous for its deep purple hues, the name Amethyst is derived from the Greek world amethustos, meaning “not drunk.” Throughout ancient history, people have believed amethyst contains properties that inhibit intoxication and encourages sobriety. Ancient Greeks wore amethyst and carved drinking cups with inlays of amethyst under the belief that it would prevent intoxication. Medieval European soldiers wore amethyst amulets into battle for protection, believing that the crystal would have the power to heal them and keep them composed during battle. Tibetans would make prayer beads out of amethyst, considering the crystal to be sacred to Buddha.

The origin stories of amethyst goes as far back as ancient Greek mythology. One story tells of Dionysus, the god of wine, who was in a fit of rage having been insulted by a mortal. Dionysus then swore to slay the next mortal to cross his path. The unfortunate soul turned out to be a beautiful young woman by the name of Amethystos, who was on her way to the temple of Artemis to pay tribute. Before Dionysus could strike her down, Amethystos prayed to Artemes for promotion, who answered her prayers by transforming the maiden into a statue of pure crystalline quartz to protect her. Amethystos was now beyond the reach of Dionysus’ wrath, who upon further reflection, quickly regretted his brutality. Dionysus then shed tears of wine in remorse and poured wine over the statue as an offering, dyeing the crystals purple.
