The legend of amethyst comes from Greek myth. One day Dionysius, the god of intoxication, was angered by an insult from a mere mortal and swore revenge on the next mortal to cross his path. To this end, he created fierce tigers to carry out his wish. Along came an unsuspecting beautiful young maiden - Amethyst, on her way to pay tribute to goddess Diana. To protect her from the brutal tiger’s claws Diana turned Amethyst into a statue of pure crystalline quartz. At the sight of the beautiful statue Dionysius wept tears of wine in remorse for his cruel action. The god's tears thus stained the quartz purple, creating the gem we know today.
Purple has long been considered a royal color so it is not surprising that amethyst has been so popular throughout history.
