Greek Mythology

According to Greek mythology, Amethyst was a young virgin who became the object of wrath of the Greek God Dionysus after he over indulged in red wine. The Goddess Diana turned Amethyst into a shimmering white stone to protect her from Dionysus (quartz). When Dionysus realized what had happened and felt remorse for his actions, his tears dripped into his red wine. His wine later spilled and fell upon the white rock, and stained it purple.

In Greek mythology, amethyst was rock crystal dyed purple by the tears of Dionysus, the god of wine and revelry. Ancient Egyptians used the stone as the representative of the zodiac sign of the goat. The goat was considered the enemy of vines and vineyards, and therefore the antidote of wine.
