Amethyst

Calm - Intuition - Peace


I don't stay single for long. I carry a lot of rose quartz, which attracts the male. Maybe I need to calm it down with the amethyst.

- Katy Perry

Amethyst is a powerful crystal for enhancing your intuitive powers and divine connection to the cosmos. Despite its calming aura, this purple quartz was a regular at wild Roman parties in honour of Dionysus, the god of agriculture and wine.

The ancient Romans knew how to have a good time! At these wild festivals, wine flowed freely and abundantly. And can you guess their secret to prevent the ancient version of drunk dialling exes?

They would drink from sparkly amethyst goblets. Thus, the Romans would get the benefit of wine's truth serum, while staying put together enough to not reveal their deepest, darkest secrets.

And so, the purple beauty became known as Amethyst, which means "not drunk" in Greek.
