Amethyst varies in color from lilac purple to a ripe plum. Due the depth and richness of the color, the gemstone has been associated with intense emotion. This stems from the legend of its origin in which the remorseful Greek god of wine wept tears of red wine over a quartz statue, which in turn stained the stone purple. Amethyst is also the traditional 6th and 28th Anniversary Gemstone.
