Around 1250 to 1300, Greeks named the purple quartz amethyst meaning "not intoxicated or intoxicating," based on the gem's seeming ability to prevent drunkenness. The name Amethyst and amethyst crystal meaning is tied to Dionysius, the Greek god of intoxication. As the story goes, Dionysius felt insulted by something a human said. He was a vengeful Greek god who decided to take his anger out on the next human who came near. A woman named Amethyst was the unfortunate human to suffer Dionysius' anger. The Greek god sent tigers to kill her. Amethyst was actually on her way to worship the goddess Diana, who turned Amethyst into a quartz statue so the tigers could not hurt her. Dionysius felt so bad about what he had done that he cried, raining wine down on the quartz statue. True to amethyst meaning, this semi-precious gem promotes mental clarity and helps curb addictive behavior. Amethyst stone meaning is demonstrated by the common thread at the root of its benefits.
