Purple Passion Amethyst and Sterling Earrings by mysticwynd

The story of the amethyst, according  to  http://www.all-that-gifts.com, comes from Greek legends: The god of wine, Bacchus, was insulted one day by a mere mortal. He swore the next mortal that crossed his path, would be attacked by his fierce tigers. Along came a beautiful maiden named Amethyst. Goddess Diana turned Amethyst in a beautiful statue of quartz to save her from the tigers claws. Remorseful Bacchus wept tears of wine over the stone maiden, creating a lively purple stone.

  1. Beautiful! Purple is also a color of royalty! Kniting amazes me, even though I don’t know how myself. So glad to see the yarn artist’s trending products as well! Great job on these! Love the unique teardrop necklace, wouldn’t it go well with the scarf, as you held a cup of coffee sporting that cozie? 🙂

  3. Typical male god, Bacchus doesn’t think to go after the guy who insulted him! (And it took a woman to salvage the situation-LOL) Thanks for including my amethyst teardrop pendant–Sure does fit the story!
