The myth of the purple gem

There is an ancient Greek myth about the genesis of the purple semi-precious stone Amethyst. Dionysus was the god of ecstasy and wine in Greek mythology and one day, just like many other days, he had a little too much wine. For reasons unknown, the young woman Amethyst felt his divine wrath . When Amethyst in despair asked the goddess Diana for help, something happened that made Dionysus realize his terrible actions.

Amethyst was transformed into a beautiful white shining quartz, which immediately made Dionysus regret his deeds. He shed some tears, which fell into his goblet of red wine. Frustrated with himself, he spilled his red wine in addition to the beautiful quartz stone which was subsequently transformed into what is known today as amethyst.
