Amethyst is a stone with a sublime purple glow. It is a symbol of wisdom, harmony and inner peace. The name of this semi-precious stone is of Greek origin. Methystos means drunkenness, the prefix “-a” indicates deprivation. Amethyst refers to sobriety. But why is the name of this mineral linked to the absence of drunkenness?

In Greek mythology, Amethystos is the name of a nymph. Dionysus, the god of wine and drunkenness, desired her, but she wished to remain chaste and refused his advances. The goddess Artemis then turned Amethystos into a hard, cold crystal, protecting her from Dionysus’ evil intentions. Mad with anger, Dionysus spilled his glass of wine on this crystal. This one then took on an intense purple color.
