Amethyst

Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz. Purple has long been considered a royal color, so it is not surprising that fine amethysts were favored by Egyptian royalty, are featured in the British Crown Jewels, and were a favorite of Catherine the Great. The name Amethyst comes from Greek "Amethustos", meaning “not drunken”. Ancient Greeks and Romans wore amethyst and made drinking vessels of it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication.
