Amethyst is a variety of violet quartz. Its purple color can be more or less intense depending on the amount of iron oxide it contains in its composition. As in almost all stones, their value depends on their purity, brightness and color; so the darker an amethyst is, the greater its value.
Its name comes from the Greek term amethystos, which means 'sober'. In ancient Greece it was believed that amethyst was a powerful antidote against drunkenness due to the Greek legend of the wine god Dionysus and the maid Amethystos.
This legend tells that the god of wine fell in love with the maid Amethystos, who wished to remain chaste. Amethystos asked the goddess Artemis to protect her, which is why the goddess turned her into a white rock. When Dionisio saw the maiden turned into a rock, he could not help crying, pouring the wine glass he had in his hand over it, causing the rock to acquire the purple color of the amethyst.
Since then it was believed that drinking in glasses made with this stone avoided getting drunk and allowed to remain sober to anyone who used this type of glasses. In addition the legend also caused that the amethyst was considered like the stone of the chastity reason why during the Average Age all the jewels of the bishops and cardinals were realized with amethysts.
