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.
