An ancient legend is associated with the name of the stone. The unusually beautiful mineral was named after the Greek nymph Ametis, with whom Dionysus, the god of wine and fun, was in love. The beautiful Amethis rejected the ever-drunk Dionysus. For this act, the goddess Artemis turned the nymph into a violet-purple stone, which was given the name "amethyst", which literally means "not drunk."
