  • Amethyst Geode Carved into Heart
  • Approximately 5 inches wide, 5.5 inches tall (not including stand)

Like citrine, amethyst is a member of the quartz family and is considered the most highly prized variety of quartz due to the range of purple hues it displays. Amethyst has a long history- in Ancient Egypt, soldiers would wear amethyst into battle because the stone was thought to bring courage and calmness, and later amethyst would represent royalty and adorn the richest and most powerful monarchs.

Amethyst gets its name from the Greek "amethystos" meaning "not intoxicated"- Ancient Greeks attributed this stone to the Wine God Dionysis and amethyst would be dropped into goblets of wine- or in some cases, wine glasses would be carved from amethyst- to prevent intoxication. Of course, you'll need a pretty large goblet to fit this heart amethyst in to test the myth.
