Inspiration Dionysius god of wine, drama, and ecstasy: Serves as inspiration for this piece. Legend has it that Dionysius himself created the amethyst stone. In a fit of drunkenness, he bet that he would set tigers upon the next mortal that crossed his path. A maiden had just that misfortune on her way to give sacrifice to Artemis goddess of the forest. The goddess turned her into a statue of a pure white quartz crystal to spare her the pain. In his remorse, Dionysius cried tears of wine, and it stained the figure a deep purple creating the purple amethyst that we know today.
