February - Amethyst (more information)

History of Amethyst

Bacchus, the god of wine, was drunk, and announced that the first mortal to come across his path would be eaten by tigers. Along came the lovely maiden Amethyst, on her way to worship at the shrine of the goddess Diana. To rescue her from a violent death, Diana transformed Amethyst into stone. When Bacchus viewed the miracle, he repented and poured wine over the stone, staining it purple. This is the legendary creation of the gemstone amethyst, for the Greek words 'amethystos' meaning 'not intoxicated'

In popular belief, the amethyst offers protection against drunkenness and seduction. In ancient times, amethyst was being engraved and cut into sculptured forms and people liked to drink wine from amethyst cups.

Roman women claimed the gem could keep their husbands faithful, and used it in rings.
Moses described it as a symbol of the Spirit of God in the official robes of the High Priest of the Jews, and the Russian Empress Catherine the Great sent thousands of miners into the Urals to look for it.

It was thought to put the wearer in a chaste frame of mind and symbolize trust and piety, for this reason, amethyst came to occupy a very prominent position in the ornaments of the Catholic clergy over the centuries.
