In Greek Mythology, Amethyst was created thanks to the god of wine Dionysus (Bacchus)and the goddess Diana. Modern science has shown it to be a purple colored quartz. The deeper the shade of purple the higher quality the stone. Very pale specimens of this stone can be heat-treated to create green amethyst.

Amethyst is reputed to have healing, and intuitive properties. The birthstone of February, the stone's name is derived from the Greek word amethystos, meaning "not drunken," because people of ancient times believed it to protect the wearer from drunkenness, and when engraved with the circle of the sun or moon, it was thought to prevent death from poison.

The official state gemstone of the state of Georgia, amethyst is mined in the U.S.A., Brazil, Uruguay, Bolivia, Argentina, Zambia, Namibia and other African countries.
