The beautiful violet prisms of an amethyst crystal are dense, cool and strengthening to hold. According to Judy Hall author of the ‘Crystal Bible’ the name amethyst is derived from the ancient Greek word for ‘being intoxicated’ and was worn to prevent drunkenness. Who knew it was a sobering purple stone….. that strengthens your resolve to abstain? It might be useful around the holiday season.
