'The Gem Of Fire'
The name Amethyst is derived from the Greek word ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated", and comes from an ancient legend.
The wine god Bacchus, angry over an insult and determined to avenge himself, decreed the first person he should meet would be devoured by his tigers.
The unfortunate mortal happened to be a beautiful maiden named Amethyst on her way to worship at the shrine of Diana. As the ferocious beasts sprang, she sought the protection of the goddess and was saved by being turned into a clear, white crystal. Bacchus, regretting his cruelty, poured the juice of his grapes over the stone as an offering; giving the gem its lovely purple hue.
I absolutely love Amethyst and I kinda have a special attachment to it.
It is always been my fav stone since I was a little one ✨I used to bring it with me inside the pocket without even knowing why and all its stories, just because I liked it and I felt to do it.
Once grown, during my early 20s, I had a rare experience, involving the Amethysts...something that I will never forget in my life.
From that time, it is always with me, during the days and nights, catching the solar and lunar rays, healing and protecting me✨
