Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz often used in jewelry.
The name comes from the Koine Greek Amethystos.
Amethyst was used as a gemstone by the ancient Egyptians and was largely employed in antiquity for intaglio engraved gems.
The Greeks believed amethyst gems could prevent intoxication, while medieval European soldiers wore amethyst amulets as protection in battle in the belief that amethysts heal people and keep them cool-headed.
Bacchus, the god of intoxication, of wine, and grapes was pursuing a maiden named Amethyste, who refused his affections. Amethyste prayed to the gods to remain chaste, a prayer which the chaste goddess Diana answered, transforming her into a white stone. Humbled by Amethyste’s desire to remain chaste, Bacchus poured wine over the stone as an offering, dyeing the crystals purple.
The most important mineral component of lapis lazuli is lazurite (25% to 40%), a feldspathoid silicate mineral.
At the end of the Middle Ages, lapis lazuli began to be exported to Europe, where it was ground into powder and made into ultramarine, the finest and most expensive of all blue pigments.
When working or meditating with Lapis Lazuli, it can bring matters more clearly to the mind. It is one of the most powerful stones and should be used with care. Wearing a Lapis Lazuli ring can help you to become a channel. The ancient Egyptians used Lapis Lazuli as a symbol of Truth.
Today, mines in northeast Afghanistan and Pakistan are still the major source of lapis lazuli. Important amounts are also produced from mines west of Lake Baikal in Russia, and in the Andes mountains in Chile. Smaller quantities are mined in Italy, Mongolia, the United States, and Canada.
Onyx is a variety of agate, which is itself a variety of chalcedony, it was widely used in Antiquity.
With the help of an arrowhead, Cupid had one day cut off the nails (onux) of Venus asleep.
He dropped on the sand these drops of nails, which the Parques metamorphosed into stone. For what comes from a celestial body must not perish.
Turquoise is a variety of alumina phosphate easily recognizable by its blue and sometimes greenish colour. The main deposits are currently located in China, the United States, Mexico and Tibet.
Symbolically, turquoise represents for Tibetan Buddhism the material and spiritual richness, when combined with red coral. For Muslims it represents spiritual power. This stone has the ability to be protective, it has been used by many cultures as an amulet for thousands of years.
In both Aztecs and Persians, the stone was a symbol of wealth and prestige.
