Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz and the most valued member of the quartz family. Its name is derived from the Greek ametystos (not drunken); ancient belief held that anyone wearing an amethyst could not become intoxicated. Amethysts must be purple, but it can display a range of shades including deep purple, light lilac, lavender and mauve. Top quality amethyst is a deep medium purple with rose-colored flashes. Its purple color made it a stone of royalty for many thousands of years.
