In ancient times, the most expensive dye to create was a rich purple hue. It took thousands of sea snails to create just a few square inches of purple dyed textiles. Because of this, the color purple was only worn by the very rich and powerful, forever associating the hue to royalty. But even before then, amethyst stones wore considered incredibly special. Ancient Greeks carved drinking vessels out of large amethysts believing their power would keep them of sound mind. Saint Valentine wore an amethyst intaglio ring with a depiction of Cupid. A bracelet adorned with a huge carved amethyst scarab was found during the excavation of King Tut’s tomb. Purple amethysts were a mighty stone.
