Diana, the virgin goddess of the hunt, saved Amethysta by turning her into the gleaming gem, saying henceforward all would behave in a restrained manner in her presence.Amethyst is also the stone of integrity and was worn by Egyptian soldiers in battle so that they would not lose their courage in dangerous situations. In the Christian Church, amethyst was the gem of purity and is associated with bishops, who traditionally wear an amethyst ring, especially in the Roman Catholic Church.Amethyst is the stone of the Buddha and is popular for Buddhist prayers beads. In Northern Africa it is a rain-making stone, and is dropped into water by medicine men and women.
