Amethyst | Mixed Lot of Oval and Round Amethyst Gemstone Beads | 35 pieces | 14 1/2-inch strand
Amethyst is a variety of quartz that has been treasured throughout the ages for its beauty and stimulating properties. Its name is derived from the Greek word amethystos, meaning “not intoxicated”, a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from intoxication. Legend has it that the wine god Bacchus, angered by an insult and determined to avenge himself, decreed that the first person who crossed his path would be subjected to his ferocious tigers. The unfortunate sacrifice was a beautiful maiden named Amethyst, who was on her way to the shrine of Diana. As the tigers leapt at her, she sought protection from the goddess and was spared by being turned into a crystal. Bacchus, in a state of regret, poured grape juice over the crystal as an offering, giving the gem its stunning violet hue.
