In Greek mythology a beautiful maiden Amethystos was pursued by the god of wine Dionysus, and was turned into a white stone so she would remain chaste. Dionysus then poured wine over the white stone as an offering dyeing it purple, and this is where the Amethyst stone got its name.
Amethyst is the most precious variety of quartz and the color of it can vary greatly, from a light pinkish violet to a deep purple, blood-red, and green.
Amethyst is believed to develop his owner's inner strengths, sharpen his wit, turn away evil thoughts, and give knowledge of the future in dreams.
Many believe that amethyst is a symbol of friendliness, open-heartiness and candor. A person wearing amethyst can be sure that his partner is true to him.
Amethyst should be worn every day and only then it's magical qualities will help his owner. However, one needs to keep in mind that amethyst changes its mood easily. So, if the owner has it on during any quarrel or confrontation, the stone can pick up the negative energy and reflect it back onto the owner. In such cases it is recommended to hold the amethyst under the running water for 5-7 minutes to calm it down.
