The amethyst got its name from the greek amethystos (not drunk) word because in the ancient times it has been belived that it protects from drunkenness. It can be found usually in volcanic rocks, in beautiful smaller or bigger crystalline voids, druses, geodes which are relatively small, but sometimes man sized and rarely they can be room sized. Its deposits covered with nice crystal peaks and also the massive coalesced shapes, sometimes streaked with whitish quartz stripes called ’chevron’ amethyst are both common. Due to its color it is one of the most popular minerals. Jewels and smaller ornaments are made of it. Most of the amethysts are from Brazil and Uruguay, but we can find them in Mexico, Madagascar, Namibia, India and many other localities.
