The Gem of Majesty
Countless ages ago, Bacchus, the god of wine and revelry, fell into a bitter contempt towards mankind. An innocent young maiden named Amethyst narrowly escaped his wrath when the goddess Diana transformed her to a pillar of shimmering crystal. Out of remorse, Bacchus poured a rich offering of wine over the girl, infusing her crystalline form with a deep violet. The divine origins of this gem have made Amethyst forever a symbol of opulence and royalty, favored by countless kings and nobles throughout time. Amethyst makes a graceful companion to the magical astrological sign of Aquarius. When one is accompanied by this lavish gem, an imperial radiance follows. Found prevailingly in Russia, Brazil, India and Mexico, Amethyst truly embodies the royal spirit.
