Lore of Amethyst In Greek mythology, the god of wine and revelry, Dionysus, murdered a maiden named Amethyst while in a drunken rage. With her dying breath the girl prayed to Artemis for protection. The goddess transformed her into a white quartz statue. When Dionysus realized what he had done, he wept into his wine goblet and collapsed at the foot of the statue, spilling the goblet’s contents on the statue. The crystal figure of Amethyst became stained with tears and wine. From this mythological tale the gem amethyst has become a symbol of sobriety. Ancient wine chalices were sometimes carved from amethyst in an attempt to stop heavy drinking. $3.99 Shipping All items are cleansed, charged and infused with Angelic Reiki!
