A FAMILY AFFAIR

Quartz, Quartz, Quartz. Probably one of the most popular families of gemstones ever found. Ever heard of: Amethyst? Citrine? Lemon Quartz? Smoky Quartz… Jasper? Well, here’s a tiny surprise for you. Yes, you may have guessed it they are all quartz. In fact, by definition Quartz is a chemical compound of silicon and oxygen, silicon dioxide SiO2. You may have heard this chemical formula in your days in high school; it is the same chemical formula as sand: the same sand which covers our beaches and the same sand which is used to make beautiful pieces of glassware.

Furthermore, we split it further into the different varieties of each family. Thus, In this article, we will dissect and examine one of the more popular Quartz: Amethyst.

A BRIEF ORIGIN OF THE AMETHYST

Amethyst dates back to the times of Ancient Greece, where mythology predicated origin. The origin of Amethyst has different versions, however, the summarization is the same. Amethyst was said to be a young woman, accidentally caught in the wrath of the Greek God of Wine, Dionysus. When Amethyst called for help, the Goddess Diana came and turned the girl to a white gemstone(allegedly quartz). Once sober, Dionysius, extremely remorseful, wept into his half-full goblet of wine, which overflowed and dyed the quartz purple. This is the story of how Amethyst came to be. The lore is not just a mere story. Spiritualists believe the amethyst is the gemstone helping the drunk become sober. The amethyst is also the gemstone helping the sober not become drunk.
