Introduction to Amethyst

Amethyst has quite the history. It was considered a jewel by the ancient Egyptians and Tibetans associated Amethyst with their Buddha. The Greeks used the purple stone to protect themselves from overindulging in drinks, assisting with visualization, and balancing their emotions.
