Bacchus, the god of wine, declared in a rage that the first person he passes will be eaten by tigers.

This turns out to be a beautiful maiden named Amethyst.

The goddess Diana quickly turned Amethyst into a white stone to save her from tigers.

Regretting his anger, Bacchus pourerd red wine over the stone as an offering to Diana, so turning the stone purple.

Amethyst has long been associated with relieving hangovers, or cure drunkenness, probably as a result of its wine-like color and the Bacchus tale.

This is some good stuff that your finding I find mythology Really interesting, my favorite god was hepheastus, god of ironworking and the forge. Him and his Tough anvil and hammer intrigue me.

One day I hope to deeply study mythology and who knows maye even do some kind of project about it.....

-------------I am glad you feel a little bit better!
As my young friend Elmo( ElovesU ) said you could go to that website I've posted or go to ebay online or put into google the request:

Massachusetts gemstones shops

...there you can find a lot of shops in Massachusetts!

If I had your address I would send it to you, but this would take a long time until you will get it!

I see you :-)

So do I, JJ! :-)
Today I started the new painting, called "Formation 2" with Elmo in the center, for he is still at the beginning of the life and with you and me on the left side and with Domenico, my Venezian friend, on the right sight ...
Slowly but surely we become a "global" family ;-)

I see you!
