Amethyst is the purple form of Quartz. According to Greek myth, the Amethyst was created by the god Bacchus, the god of intoxication and grapes. He was pursuing a woman named Amethyste who refused his affections and prayed to the gods to remain chaste. The goddess Diana responded and turned Amethyste into a white stone. In shame Bacchus poured a goblet of wine over the stone, dying it purple.
