"Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz often used in jewelry. The name comes from the Ancient Greek a- ("not") and methustos ("intoxicated"), a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness; the ancient Greeks and Romans wore amethyst and made drinking vessels of it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication." -Wikipedia
According to the Romans ancient beliefs I can drink as much as I want and never have to worry about making a fool of my self as long as I am wearing amethyst of course! :) So for all those gin and tonic lovers I give you a lovely collection of amethyst jewellery for those crazy nights out.
