The name Amethyst comes from the Greek word "Amethystos" which means "preservation against drunkenness", referring to the legend of Dionysus the God of wine. The latter, in love with a young girl named Amethystos, woos her when she wishes to remain chaste. The goddess Artemis then transforms her into a white stone to protect her. Furious and humiliated, Dionysos pours wine on the stone and transforms it into a violet-colored crystal: amethyst. Considered as a symbol of sobriety, the Greeks used cups set with an amethyst stone to drink wine from, attracting luck, strength and protection, against spells and drunkenness!
In Chinese astrology, the gem is associated with the sign of the Dragon. This charismatic sign evokes power, intuition, stubbornness and a natural ability to seduce.
