Using Amethyst can help you think both soberly and critically about the situations you face. And this will lead you to far greater success in handling them. Many claim that it can help against drunkenness. And that its bright colour came from the god of wine, Dionysos. Pouring out his wine over a clear crystal in mourning.

And to not be clouded with emotion of any specific sort.
