The name amethyst comes from the Greek word amethustos which means not drunken. In the first century, Pliny wrote that amethyst was so named for its color being nearly the same as that of wine. Early Greeks believed that drinking wine from an amethyst cup would prevent intoxication. 

The astrological signs of amethyst are Pisces, Virgo, Aquarius and Capricorn. Amethyst is the birthstone for the month of February. Amethyst is the symbolic gemstone for the 17th wedding anniversary.

Purple has long been considered a royal color so it is not surprising that amethyst has been so
much in demand during history. Fine amethysts are featured in the British Crown Jewels and
were also a favorite of Catherine the Great and Egyptian royalty. Amethyst, transparent purple
quartz, is the most important quartz variety used in jewelry.

Leonardo Da Vinci wrote that amethyst was able to dissipate evil thoughts and quicken the
intelligence.
