There are many legends about Amethyst. The deep purple gemstone has been prized as a symbol of power, love, wealth and protection over the ages. The most well know colours of Amethyst are purple and violet however, Amethyst can occur in many other colour varieties including, pink and black and also many shades in between. Before the Amethyst mines in Brazil were discovered in the 1800's, Amethyst was regarded as the most valuable of all gems and it was considered as rare as rubies, emeralds and sapphires.
In Ancient times, the colour purple signified power and royalty and cardinal status. Only royalty, nobility and the clergy were able to wear it. The British royal crown jewels feature a collection of Amethyst gems to this day.
The name Amethyst is derived from the Koine Greek word 'Amethystas' which means 'not drunken' or 'to intoxicate'. This is a reference to the belief that the ancient Greeks believed that the stone could prevent them from alcohol intoxication. They used Amethyst gems in goblets as well as jewellery.
The Ancient Egyptians believed Amethyst protected them against negativity and feelings of guilt and fear. Amethyst gems have been found in many royal Egyptian tombs including that of King Tutankhamen.
Amethyst was considered by the ancients to be the most spiritual of gems. It is excellent to have in a room setting where you may wish to meditate or spend time in contemplation.
Geology: Amethyst is a variety of Quartz formed in the Earth from a combination of minerals, extreme heat and water, over 130 million years ago. It is found inside pyrogenic volcanic rocks commonly known as Basalts. Amethyst forms in fissures of volcanic rocks where there was once very hot volcanic lava, (50-250°c) silica enriched water, trace amounts (10-100ppm) of ferric iron (Fe3+).
