Amethyst, also known as 'The Gem of Fire' was valued as much as diamonds multiple times in our ancient history... Legend says that Amethyst was the name of a beautiful maiden, who was struck by the wine God Bacchus who vowed to attack and kill the first person he meets after being angered at an insult. Amethyst, who was on her way to worship the shrine of Diana, was attacked by Bacchus who sprung to her surprise; but as she cried out for help to Diana, she was protected by being turned into a clear white crystal. Regretting his cruelty, Bacchus poured the juices of his grapes over the crystal as an offering to Amethyst, which is said to give the stone its beautiful brilliant hue...
