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.
