Amethyst Cluster

Amethyst is in the quartz family and is most recognized for its royal purple color. The Greek myth associated with it is that the god Bacchus spilled his divine wine on the goddess Amethyste after she was turned into a piece of quartz by the goddess Diana. It's for this reason that amethyst is popularly used as a stone to protect against inebriation as well as unwanted advances from men!
