When this woman, named Amethyst, cried to another god for help she became colorless quartz. Bacchus’ goblet of wine was poured over her, forming a purple stain. For Romans, protection from drunkenness was among the amethyst properties. Almost in contrast to this chaotic legend, a common amethyst stone meaning is calm and freedom from anxiety. Developing a connection with Jesus Christ, and the amethyst gold ring would later become a traditional symbol of Christian bishops.
