The name "amethyst" comes from the Greek word "amethystos" meaning "not drunk". According to Greek mythology, the god Dionysus protected people who owned an amethyst from drunkenness. This is why amethyst was often found in wine jugs and goblets in ancient times.
To judge the quality of an amethyst, it is important to pay attention to its color, clarity and finish. The most sought after color for amethyst is a deep, rich violet. A bright, deep color is a sign of high quality. Amethyst may contain inclusions, which are small impurities visible within the stone. The fewer inclusions an amethyst has, the higher the quality. Finish is also important, a shiny and symmetrical finish is the best sign of a high quality amethyst.
