Amethyst is the world’s most beautiful purple crystal which the Greeks and Romans believed has the mystical power to prevent intoxication. Also, they would wear the Amethyst at the navel. In fact, talismans adorned the gemstone in the battlefield because it was believed that it kept them cool-headed with its healing power. Many an Amethyst has been excavated from graves across the various parts of England.
There is a famous story associated with the precious stone. It is said that the Roman god of wine, Dinosys, once chased a maiden called Amethyst. The helpless maiden to safeguard her chastity, prayed to goddess Diana who turned her into white stone. Amethyst’s desire to remain chaste deeply impacted Dinosys and he poured a glass of wine upon the statue in homage. Though this story emerged years after the ancient Greeks, originally it was known that the Greek Titan Rhea presented Dinosys with the Amethyst to keep his sanity intact.
The Uruguayan Amethyst for centuries has been prized as a royal gemstone, believed to control evil thoughts and sharpen intelligence. It brings upon sobriety, chastity, and control increased by wearing the stone. (Chain sold separately)
