The largest producer of amethyst is Brazil. This beautiful stone is also mined in Russia and a few states across the U.S.
Traditionally, amethyst has been thought to have the power of keeping its wearer level-headed. Ancient Greeks and Romans drank from goblets carved from amethyst, believing the wine from these goblets could not intoxicate the drinker.
Amethysts were used not only to protect from natural intoxication, but supernatural as well. Cardinals and bishops wore amethyst rings and amethyst necklaces because they believed the amethysts protected them from mystical intoxication.
