Its color is as unique as it is seductive,
though in fact this gemstone of all gemstones is said to protect its
wearer against seduction. The amethyst is extravagance in violet.
For many thousands of years, the most striking representative of the
quartz family has been a jewel coveted by princes both
ecclesiastical and secular. Moses described it as a symbol of the
Spirit of God in the official robes of the High Priest of the Jews,
and the Russian Empress Catherine the Great sent thousands of miners
into the Urals to look for it. In popular belief, the amethyst
offers protection against drunkenness - for the Greek words 'amethystos'
mean 'not intoxicated' in translation. A more apt stone for the
month of February, particularly if there is to be plenty going on in
the way of carnival celebrations, could thus hardly be wished for.
