Amethystís name is derived from the Greek wordmeaning ďnot drunkenĒ and an ancient Greek myth, which explains it. ĒThe God, Bacchus, angry because of an insult, decreed that the first person he met would be eaten by his tigers. The unfortunate person happened to be Amethyst on her way to worship at the shrine of Diana. When the tigers sprang, Diana transformed the girl into a clear, transparent crystal. In remorse, Bacchus poured the juice of his grapes over the stone as an offering, thus giving the gem itís beautiful color. Ē The Greeks believed that Amethyst would calm anger, relieve frustrated passion and prevent intoxication.
Used in metaphysical practice, Amethyst is often called for healing, meditation and psychic abilities. Amethystís ability to activate the higher mind is key in gaining clarity of mind and thought.

Amethyst further can assist in emotion based decisions through the clarity previously mentioned.
