Stone Magic ~ The Spirit Within

Amethyst History & Lore
According to Greek mythology, 
Amethyst was a young virgin 
who became the object of wrath 
of the Greek God Dionysus after 
he became intoxicated with red 
wine. When Amethyst cried out 
to Goddess Diana for help, she 
immediately turned the girl into a white, shimmering stone (quartz). When Dionysus realized what had happened and felt remorse for his actions, his tears dripped into his goblet of red wine. The goblet overturned, and the red wine spilled all over the white rock, saturating it until it became the purple quartz that is now known as Amethyst.
