Amethyst is a wonderful gemstone also called "Rose de France", recognizable from its beautiful light shade of purple, reminiscent of a lavender shade. It is a very hard material, which means you don't have to be particularly careful with it, but of course it is not as hard as a diamond, putting it under a chainsaw for example is not a particularly good idea. During the previous centuries, pale shades of amethyst were not rated as highly as darker ones, but since several centuries, it became very popular, thanks to its subtly elegant looks and to the fact that it goes along with nearly any kind of dress, especially with the ones of warmer colors.
In Ancient Greece, people believed amethyst to be a cure for drunkenness, so they were always worn by those who drank for the first time, in order to avoid awkward situations. In fact, that's the source of Amethyst's name as well, it comes from the Greek expression "amethusos", which means "not drunk". According to the myth, it's color came from Bacchus, the God of wine who poured some of the content on its glass on a colorless amethyst.
