Amethyst is one of the most famous and prominent crystals because of its beautiful coloration as well as its spiritual and literal meaning.
The spiritual meaning of Amethyst is groundedness, tranquility, and calm. The literal meaning of Amethyst is “not intoxicated” – its name translates from the Greek word améthystos.
Myth of how Amethyst came to be - An angry Bacchus (Greek God) swore to have his tigers attack the next person he came across. Her name was Amethyst and upon seeing Bacchus and his tigers she prayed to the Goddess for protection. She was then turned in beautiful white quartz. Bacchus was still angry and took his grapes and squeezed them over the beautiful Amethyst and dyed her purple!
