LEGEND OF AMETHYST
Very long time ago, a beautiful maiden was on her way to worship at the Temple of Diana, when she had the misfortune to get on the way of the wine god Bacchus. He was in a bad temper as he had just endured some slight from a mortal. Hence, he had vowed to take his revenge upon the next person he met. He noticed the maid and unleashed his two guardian tigers upon her. As the tigers were running towards the maiden, Goddess Diana intervened and spared her that terrible fate by turning her into a pure, clear stone. Bacchus was immediately remorseful, and poured his wine over the stone as an atonement, and the crystal became stained by a deep violet hue. After this, the crystal was named after the name of the maiden – Amethyst and it was revered by the ancients for its power to cure drunkenness and calm physical passions.<br>
