Crushed amethyst was used by the Ancient Greeks and Romans as a way to ward off intoxication. One story is told that partly this was due to the fact that the Romans sometimes put amethyst in their wine. Then the wine could be watered down and still retain its purple color from the stones within. That meant less alcohol, and thus, less intoxication. Both the Greeks and Romans made drinking cups of amethyst and wore talismans of amethyst to prevent intoxication. There is a Greek legend of how amethyst got its purple colour. Once Dionysus was so annoyed by Artemis that he set his sacred tigers upon a maiden attending her shrine. To preserve the maiden, whose name was Amethyst, Artemis petrified her in sparkling quartz. Lamenting this virgin's demise, Dionysus poured a the contents of his cup over the statue, which immediately became infused with the purple of the grape. Mineralogy Amethyst belongs to the group of crystal quartzes, Those representatives of the quartz group that form large visible crystals. It’s colour is largely due to the large traces of Iron it contain in the crystal lattice. It is formed hydrothermally from from weak, iron-containing silicic acid solutions, mainly in hollows formed by gas bubbles in volcanic rock, more rarely also in rock clefts and rocks with cracks and passages running through them.
