It has been used to make all forms of jewelry, including necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings, which we will be looking at today. Apart from its obviously stunning appearance, the amethyst gemstone has great history and other powerful qualities which attract more and more people to it.
The naturally purple color of the amethyst gemstone is one of its most attractive outward qualities. There are those who, despite the availability of other gemstones, choose to go for the amethyst solely because of the sparkling purple nature. It gives this aura of maturity, class, and of course, royalty. Amethyst is also the birthstone of all those born in the month of February, and is believed to bring them good luck as well as courage whenever they lack confidence. Let us look at the history of amethyst gemstone.
Short history of amethyst gemstone
The name of this beautiful crystal, amethyst, is derived from the Greek way of saying something is not intoxicated, which is ‘ametusthos’. This name is associated with the belief that the amethyst will prevent drunkenness and other forms of intoxication in a person who wears it.
According to Greek legend, the wine god, named Bacchus felt insulted and got irate over it. In his anger, he decided that the insult would not go unpunished, so he cursed the next human he would meet to be eaten by his deadly tigers. Unfortunately, the person he met was a young beautiful and innocent woman, who was on her way to worship at the shrine of goddess Diana. As already cursed by Bacchus, the tigers hungrily ran towards the young mortal woman to devour her, but she called upon the goddess Diana for protection.
Despite being swift to ask for help from the goddess, the beautiful mortal was not spared of some misfortune, because while the goddess heard her prayer, she could not do more than turn the maiden into a white crystal. Seeing this, the wine god Bacchus, regretted the action he took out of anger, and made an offering by pouring his grape juice on the crystal. This is what gave amethyst its signature purple colour, as that same crystal turns out to be the root of this precious gem we have today. There are versions of this story that say the maiden’s name was Amethyst, which is another thought to where the gemstone got its name.
Special powers that the amethyst gemstone is believed to have
Because the amethyst has been around for such a long time, so many have talked about all the good fortune they have received as a result of wearing this gemstone. They may look unbelievable, but they are as true as you take them to be. Here are some of the most well-known powers that the amethyst gemstone is believed to have.
It can help prevent drunkness
If this power seems little to you, then you don’t know what it is like to be addicted to alcohol. A lot of people have a hard time controlling what they take in when alcohol is available to them in large quantities, and this can cause a lot of health as well as financial problems. Where does the amethyst come in here?
Well, it is believed that the gemstone has the power to protect a person from getting drunk. In those days, especially in Greece and Rome, people attached amethyst gemstones to their drinking goblets. They believed that the presence of the amethyst in their drinking vessels lessened whatever intoxicating power the alcohol might have, and it did work for them that way. Those who could not adorn their cups with amethyst just wore it on their clothes or as a necklace, and it had the same effect as those who attached the gem to cups.
It can help strengthen relationships
A lot of people believe, even till this day, that amethyst gemstones can be the solution to any issues they could have concerning love and relationships. It is said that the amethyst crystal possesses special energy that will help a person understand the needs of their partner in a relationship. With this understanding, each member of the union can easily grant the desires of their significant other and unlock the keys to true happiness with that special someone.
The presence of the amethyst stone has a way of opening hearts to express true love, this has been said about people who have a hard time letting themselves go in relationships, usually because of a former abusive partner. When a person wears this stone often, especially on the left side of his or her chest, their hearts will be stimulated, giving them the ability to love afresh.
It can help with warding off evil thoughts
This might be a little supernatural, but I am sure you are not surprised. These gems do have powerful history and we should expect anything from them, including magical or supernatural powers. Those who used amethyst for this purpose in days long before ours, wore the amethyst in the form of rings.
Religious leaders of old, especially those who took vows of celibacy, would make rings out of amethyst gemstone and wear it all the time to ward of any sexual thoughts which would be evil, given the vows they had taken. In situations where they found their minds getting tempted to wander towards evil sexual thoughts, they would kiss the amethyst rings and it would return their minds to more important thoughts like spiritual growth.
